Artist Adam Putnam put together a lecture series this week at 80WSE gallery. Last night Dan Torop presented his work in recreating a dream of a flock of swans flying through the Bowery in the 90s using an emergent behavior computer program (fyi it is beautiful) (I’ll post photos later…)
On Friday Seth Kelly (full disclosure my husband) and Karsten Krejcarek will have a very compelling discussion about simultaneity.
Hope to see you there!
