Carolyn L Kane: Chromatic Algorithms Part 2

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 11:00am

Inquiry welcomes back CAROLYN L. KANE who writes about the history, philosophy and aesthetics of electronic media. We continue our conversation about her new book CHROMATIC ALGORITHMS: SYNTHETIC COLOR, COMPUTER ART AND AESTHETICS AFTER CODE. Tonight Kane talks about the wild history of Bell Telephone Laboratories and the artists/scientists that worked there who pioneered some bizarre new technology for producing colors that affected the viewer. We also talk about the invention of Day-Glo and synthetic color. It all began with a problem with dogs peeing on a fence. If you are interested in art and technology, don’t miss this show!
