Paint to Programming: exploring the role of algorithms in SciArt

What Is The Role Of Programming In Artwork Creation? Is Programming Preliminary A Medium To Be Hidden To An Audience More Interested In The Interface Rather Than In Its Algorythmic Content ? Or Is It Both Medium And Content, Revealing The Inner Working, The Politics, And The Tactical/Strategic Uses Of Code And Algorithmic Complexity In A Culture Incrisingly Withdrawn From Its Crucial Implications? 
Thanks to a collaboration between ArttheScience and ArtSci Salon, this event is meant to initiate a conversation to undertsnad the many uses of algorithms in artistic and scientific research, from ways to solve problems in fluid mechanics by drawing inspiration from the dripping technique of Jackson Pollock, to exploring and making visible the complex dynamics of the blockchain, to using algorithms to process and disp[lay data for science communication.
Join ArtSci Salon and Art the Science at Fields for an evening of presentation and discussion with:

Owen Fernley <https://owenfernley.com/>: Creative coding

Bernardo Palacios Muñiz: <https://hyperallergic.com/169887/the-physics-of-pollock/> Modern painting: A fluid mechanics perspective
Moderator: Roberta Buiani
December 4th | 6pm-8pm
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
222 College Street | Room 230

Please, RSVP here 
Julia Krolik is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Art the Science, an organization dedicated to uniting and empowering artists and scientists to collectively advance scientific knowledge. As an exhibiting artist, focusing on science, art and new media, Julia has created works for CBC, the Ontario Science Centre, the Toronto Urban Film Festival and the Scotia Bank Photography Festival. 
Owen Fernley is an engineer and experimentalist. He has experience programming computational engines in Fortran and C and is currently building front-end web tools in javascript to aid in exploration geology.He co-created Decomposing Pianos, an experimental music collective focusing on projects related to art, science, experimental music and new media. 
Sarah Friend is an artist and software engineer working at a large blockchain development studio. When not doing that, she creates games and other interactive experiences. Her practice investigates murky dichotomies - like those between privacy and transparency, centralization and decentralization, and the environment and technology - with playfulness and absurdist humour.
Bernardo Palacios Muñiz is a mechanical engineer and a researcher from Mexico City. His thesis at UNAM "Descifrando a Pollock: Arte y Mecánica de Fluidos" explored the technique inplemented by Jackson POllock through the perspective of fluid mechanics
