The ways we are connected to the people, things, ideas, and other life forms on this planet is becoming increasingly relevant. At least, that’s the premise behind the 2013 Themester on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. Connectedness: Networks in a Complex World is the launching pad for a variety of lectures, film series, exhibitions, and courses offered on campus and around town this fall.
On this episode of Artworks, we explore the concept of The Network from its most literal to most abstact–from the microscopic to the societal.
We bring you two stories that emerge from a connection between visual art and science and technology–made manifest in the current exhibition at the Grunwald Gallery, Imagining Science. We also examine the intersection art and technology within the context of making and marketing music.
We discuss an attempt on the local level to link all of the parties involved in the food system, from growers to consumers and restaurants to waste collection agencies.
And what better place to examine the ties that bind than in a family? American Student Radio brings us a portrait of a complex man painted by the people whose lives surrounded his.
