Date: 28 April 2024
Where: The Lab, San Francisco

This April at The Lab in San Francisco, our very own Director of Programs at Leonardo/ISAST, Vanessa Chang, will be featured as a guest speaker following the premiere of Jen Liu's latest dance creation, GHOST__WORLD. This groundbreaking piece for four dancers delves into the spectral existence of lives ensnared in the global machinery of technology, drawing from firsthand interviews with electronics and e-waste workers in South China.

As a result of 50 years of publishing work on the cutting edge, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts, design and humanities on science and technology.

The Mindful Mona Lisa: Quantum Cloud of Leonardo’s Alchemy

In the above image (Codex Atlanticus 520r, c. 1490) Leonardo writes:

“Body born of the perspective of Leonardo Vinci, disciple of experience.  Let this body be made not with examples of another body but only with simple lines.”

This is one of his greatest declarations of respect for esperienza, meaning both experience and experiment.
