Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue

BY ÁLVARO AMAT
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 29, 2016

"The choice isn't about science and are, it's about living and not living."

In "Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue" from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 2, Álvaro Amat works at the Field Museum of Natural History, where Sue, the world-famous Tyrannosaurus rex, is the star of a collection of some 30 million objects. His experience collaborating with the Field Museum’s scientists in the creation of exhibitions that inspire curiosity led him to combine art and science in spontaneous explorations and experiments with his son, Nicolas. As an artist, educator, and parent, Álvaro attempts to create an in-between space of curiosity and wonder to break the barriers between reason and imagination for the integral formation of a more complete, creative, and happy individual.

The Art of Active Working Metaphors

BY RICH HAPTONSTALL
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

To FVCC theatre professor Rich Haptonstall, set design is an "active working metaphor": not only does it have to be comparable and representative of real life, but it has to be a living, moving artform. As the three stories in this presentation demostrate, knowing how to use visual cues such as shape, color, and texture allow Haptonstall to illusrate the essence of the play and the characters therin.
