Nano.Stasis

Speaker, Presentation for Art, Technology, Psyche II. 

Nano.Stasis is an art form that explores the exquisite side of a radical new technology – one that is changing lives. Sparked by Harvard’s Tarr Family Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics, Kit Parker, and his invention of a cotton candy-inspired rotary jet spinning technology, nanofibers form the basis of this novel medium.  Parker’s groundbreaking work has created a nanofiber textile that is evolving for a spectrum of futuristic applications – from wound healing, tissue and organ growth to fashion couture and "smart" sports related products. Now, for the first time, the tiny fibers are becoming art. Collaborating with Harvard’s Disease Biophysics Group, artist Carla Ciuffo has worked together with doctoral candidate Nina Sinatra to transform nanofibers into small-scale canvases and large format artworks. Showing how artists use science to make their fantasies real and palpable, their discussion will also focus on how science uses the arts in exactly the same way.

ArtTechPsyche II returns to Harvard on April 14, 2016. This event celebrates human expression at the intersection of technology and the arts. Harvard Digital Arts and Humanities (DARTH), in collaboration with the Harvard Library and the Digital Futures Consortium, invites you to participate in a day of immersive digital experiences, art exhibitions, technology demos, and visionary speakers on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at Arts @ 29 Garden from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Explore the creative process and its impact on emerging technologies. Discover the ways in which technology shapes us, and conversely, how the artist continually challenges and informs technological development. Interact with cutting edge art installations and software demos to experience the world in new ways. Meet like-minded faculty, staff, students, researchers, and colleagues of any skill level while exploring new projects and collaborations on and around campus.

“There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with.”

Second Nature Review | Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Stasis and Second Nature

Organic elements found in nature, like human beings, are transient. They/we exist in a constant state of cyclical transition. Change and resisting change is second nature, something deeply ingrained within the enigma of being human. If you look closely at the composite photographs in Stasis, you’ll notice tiny human bodies drifting like caraway seeds tossed in the wind. And with the human subjects free from gravity, the dandelions and wintry trees can bear as much emotional weight as the fragile human bodies. It is their second nature. It is our second nature.

They should be full of movement, but as these minuscule humans float within an enormous garden, it feels like something is about to happen but hasn’t – yet. Perhaps they’re diving headlong into the void, or perhaps they’re ascending. It’s not clear, as this in-between moment absolves them of judgment.

As in second nature, Stasis takes pause, presenting a moment of calm before we take the inevitable next step.
