The Department of Visual, Media, and Performing Arts‘ SkypeOnArt series will continue its fall season on Monday, November 4, with a presentation by Ken Rinaldo. Ken Rinaldo is internationally recognized for interactive bio art and robotic installations blurring the boundaries between the organic and inorganic and engaging the co-evolution between living and evolving technological cultures. His work interrogates fuzzy boundaries, and posits that as new machinic and algorithmic species arise, we need to better understand the complex intertwined ecologies these semi-living species create with our natural world. His works are focused on trans-species communication, animal agency, insect, bacterial and emergent machine intelligences.

Rinaldo is Professor of Contemporary Art & Technology practices, within the College of Arts & Sciences at The Ohio State University teaching robotics, 3D modeling, rapid prototyping and 3D animation. 

SkypeOnArt begins at 11:30 a.m. in Fine Arts Building, Room 109.  All are invited to this free event and are welcome to bring their lunch.
