HIGH VOLTAGE FIELDS! Arts, Science & Technology: Working Together Union College and The Schenectady Museum & Suits-Bueche P l a n e t a r i u m, whose mission is to interpret the history of technological change and its impact on society and culture, is proud to present High Voltage Fields, a conference in which to explore the receding boundaries between the Arts, Science, and Te c h n o l o g y, while addressing the belief in a critical need for a healthy trinity for a successful society. Our Keynote Speaker will be Natalie Jere m i j e n k o, 1999 Rockefeller Fellow, design engineer and t e c h n o a rtist. Her work includes digital, electromechanical and interactive systems as well as biotechnology, and has been exhibited throughout the world, including the Guggenheim (NYC), Museum Moderne Kunst (Germany) and LUX in London, as well as creating the “upside down trees” sculpture at MASSMoCA. We hope you’ll join us as we expose the ties that bind the Arts, Science, and Technology, examine the creative quotient which is deemed necessary for each to gro w, and e x p l o re the human spirit behind discovery and invention.
