October 27, 2012 – January 13, 2013
NYSCI, in conjunction with Northern.Lights.mn, presents ReGeneration, an exhibition that explores the connection of cultural vitality to immigration, urbanization and sustainability through the intersection of art, technology and science.
"Cities bear some similarity with other complex biological systems that are sustained by resource distribution networks, such as the circulatory or vascular systems. But there also are fundamental differences that make cities uniquely human: social interactions and the concentration of economic and cultural activities in larger cities lead to an acceleration of time – and greater rates of innovation." http://www.santafe.edu/news/item/nature-science-of-cities/
Fourteen artists/groups will participate to connect audiences through active participation, aesthetic beauty, technology, culturally shared symbols, and vocabulary.
Free with NYSCI admission.
