Evening Exchange: Material and Mechanical
30 October 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
‘Indeed we may consider the engine as the material and mechanical representative of analysis.’’
– Ada Lovelace, ‘Notes upon L. F. Menabrea’s Sketch of the Analytical Engine Invented by Charles Babbage
On the surface Ada Lovelace’s parents had contrasting interests. Lord Byron was poetical and dramatic, while Lady Byron was scientific and rational. But are the arts and the sciences really so different?
Hosted by AXNS, a collective of artists and scientists, our final Evening Exchange brings scientists and designers together in a conversation about the perceived tensions between the two fields. The evening features a discussion between neuroscientist Dr Caroline Di Bernardi Luft and designer Heather Barnett.
By examining some curious inventions (such as the amphibious bicycle above), we’ll also explore how design and science can solve real-life problems in unexpected ways.
