Nela OchoaXavier Cortada, and Patricia Van Dalen: How Science Inspires Their Art.

 

Nela Ochoa’s work is mainly focused on the human body, and has worked with X-rays, tomography and more, integrating them into videos, paintings and installations. She has worked with genetic formulas and graphics of her own DNA printed in latex. UM alum and South Florida native Xavier Cortada often collaborates with scientists in making art, and has created art from genetic projects, the synthesis of a strand of DNA (http://cortada.com/2010/sequentia) and real-time data collected at a watershed in New Hampshire’s White Mountains (http://cortada.com/artists-pages). Venezuelan artist Patricia Van Dalen is interested in incorporating artwork into places where the presence of art is not expected, including in botanical gardens, libraries, universities, parks and plazas. Her recent work also explores the idea of fragmentation of form, space, image, and color. She is the creator of Data Hall, an exhibition constructed from recycled computer parts, that is installed at the UM Center for Computational Science.

 

The conversation among the artists will be moderated by Dr. Jill Deupi, Director of the Lowe Art Museum.
