Event: Gesamtkunstwerk 1020


For those of you like me who don’t know German or familiar with the study of aesthetics, Gesamtkunstwerk is a work of art that incorporates many art forms.  A fitting name for a series of talks that brings together people from diverse disciplines to share ideas.

Tomorrow, Gesamtkunstwerk promises an intellectually satisfying Saturday afternoon with presentations by:

Speaker Field Talk
1. Xiang Cao Music An Introduction to Music Technology
2. Vincy Cheung Illustration Honesty in Art
3. Junrui Wang Interior Lighting + Jewlery Design Fast and Slow
4. Patrick de Perio Particle Physics Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe with Ghostly Particles
5. Haifeng Luo Mathematics Probability and Decision Making
6. Renqian Yang Ceramic Freedom and Confinement
7. Bart Jan Polman Architecture On Indifference
8. Paolo Mele Curation Investigation on the Extreme Land
9. Bing Han Painting Using Representational Language to Paint the Abstract
10. Sissi Tang Social Innovation Little Cosmo Studio and I

The talks are about 20 minutes each, and we’re sure you can come and go as you please, but you very well may want to stay for the whole time…

Pupin Hall Room 1402 (14th fl.), Columbia University, 550 W 120th St.
