What is the human? Imagining The Posthuman Self

@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Exploring the confluence of the human body, science and technology
the focus of Anatol Bologan's art-based research is to develop a series of digital and interactive artworks that engage the viewer with the discourse of humanism versus technicism by immersing the viewers into a multisensory interactive space. Interdisciplinary at its core, the project engages scientific, medical and technology-based research and imaging in the fields of human anatomy, perception, neurology and computer science. It uses concepts of artificial intel¬ligence and medical imaging as source material for artwork that consists of digital images, sculptures and interactive installations. The digital paintings, interactive sculptures as well as the interactive installations explore the confluence of human body, science and technology to further enquire and attempt to answer the question: “What is the Human?”

Depth vs Breadth

@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Eddie  Coulson asks: How does a school truly make an impact on its students, parents and employees? How does a school create meaning beyond the curriculum and content it teaches? How does a school thrive, not just survive? How does a school “go deep” with the people it serves?

These are a few of the questions that motivate leaders to transform their schools into learning organizations, not just places to warehouse students and teachers. Eddie's presentation brings forth ideas that challenge the traditional educational system, spark new ideas and raise new questions about meeting the needs of students, teachers, parents and communities.
