Presenters:

Brian Goeltzenleuchter
http://www.bgprojects.com

Brian is an artist-in-residence at the Institute for Art and Olfaction
in Los Angeles, a group that supports creative experimentation with
scent. During graduate school at UC San Diego, he created a series of
home fragrances inspired by different art movements - from the Cubists
to the Fauves - as part of a conceptual home decor shop.  Most
recently he had an exhibition at exhibition at the Santa Monica Museum
of Art titled "Sillage," where visitors could sample a series of
scents that were inspired by a different part of Los Angeles, from
downtown to the harbor to the San Fernando Valley.

Since engineer/artist Brian Matthews made his first pair of mechanical
wings in 1998, wing making became his passion. He has made 17 pairs of
wings varying in materials and operation from simple pulley opening to
pneumatics and robotic control. Most recently, he built a robotic
"extra hand", and a 3D printed robotic parrot called "Pollymer".

Soyoung Shin

Soyoung lives in Los Angeles, California, USA. She graduated in 2011
from the University of Washington with a Bachelors of Science in
Computer Science. She has a post-disciplinary practice that includes
sculpture, performance, video, photography, and technology. Soyoung
enjoys the intersection of media and science, and her work uses new
technologies to create connections between viewers and ideas. Using
found advertisements and a readymade discount robotic teddy bear, "THE
50% OFF BALLET" calls attention toward underlying attitudes which
frame Valentine's Day. This piece places the viewer in a position
where they are provided messaging from media ranging from musical
typical of the holiday, to what could be considered perverse.

Adam Florin

Adam will present a software system for creating generative music
called Loom. Loom produces music by using random number generation to
distort its internal model of musical "gesture". The project came out
of his research and practice at CalArts.
