Computer Science Small Auditorium (Room 105)
Distinguished Lecture Series
Vibeke Sorensen, from School of Cinema-Television, University of Southern California
Vibeke Sorensen will be showing and discussing her work in computer art and animation, focusing on her recent interactive and collaborative work. This includes stereoscopic animation and software, as well as interactive web based work including "MindShipMind". The latter is in collaboration with Austrian composer Karlheinz Essl and based on the writing of 30 artists and scientists participating in a 3 week seminar called "Order, Complexity, and Beauty," at the MindShip in Copenhagen, Denmark in l996. She will also discuss her "Global Visual Music" project in collaboration with University of California, San Diego Music Department Professor Miller Puckette (Mathematician and Computer Scientist) and Rand Steiger (Composer). They are developing a new multi-media programming language which allows users to combine 2 and 3-D computer graphics and animation, digital video, and computer sound and music for real-time, improvised multi-media performance. Finally, she will review her "New Display Technology for Computer Art" project in which she is working with USC Chemistry professor Dr. Mark Thompson on the development of new, light emitting displays for still and moving images.
