EMPAC—The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center

Engineering, science, and art are often seen as having common ground. This is fed by a romantic view of Leonardo da Vinci, the genius who brought these disciplines together in his mind, life, and practice, and by an enthusiastic view of computer technology that continuously provides new scenarios and tools, which are used in all three fields.

This lecture does not go along with the idea of putting everything into one bag and shaking it before deep-frying the mixture, but instead gives a perspective on the differences of the three fields in their motivations, methodologies, and goals. And out of a clear and respectful view of differences, a potential for collaboration and cross-pollination might evolve.
