  • John Hillard Lecture
    Lecture
    Construction and Engineering Hall
    Free
    Tue, 10/28/2014 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

    A Catalogue Of Errors (Brief Synopsis)
    Since the Sixties, artists producing work of a transient nature (perhaps made for a specific site, for a limited duration or from perishable materials) have made use of various recording instruments in order to document their practice and give it a form of continued existence. To this end, the camera has been widely and successfully deployed, but has also caused questions to be raised about photography as a reliable source of evidence - not just in connection with works of art, but in a broader context.

    In addressing this issue, I have sought to conduct a critical interrogation of photography as a representational medium, but also to disclose and celebrate its specificity. Many of its perceived failings (blurred or unfocused images, for example) might equally be considered as unique assets. Indeed, through a catalogue of errors one may yet arrive at one's correct destination. - 2014, Joh Hilliard

    Born Lancaster, 1945, John  Hilliard studied in the sculpture department at St Martin’s School Of Art, London, 1964-7. Awarded a three-month travel scholarship to the USA, 1965, and, influenced by the landscapes of the Mid-West and the architecture of New York and Chicago, began making site-specific installations in 1966. From 1968 to 2010 taught in various art departments, including the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam and the Slade School Of Fine Art, and is Emeritus Professor in Fine Art, University College London.

  • Humanity in the Machine: What Comes After Greed?
    Lecture
    Austin Auditorium
    Tue, 10/28/2014 - 7:00pm - 8:15pm

    2014 Dean's Distinguished Lecture


    Brian David Johnson, counters the myth of runaway, soulless machines, by investigating how technology reflects the mission and values of the societies that create it. From high-speed NASCAR racing to high-speed financial trading, we explore our intimate relationship with our machines and how we incessantly tune them for success, for profit, and routinely for greed. But what comes after greed? Understanding that we imbue our technology and machines with our humanity means we must think more closely about what we are building, why we are building it, and what we want our tools to accomplish. Can we optimize for something other than profit? Streamline for profit plus... other values: fairness, quality, safety or social responsibility. How do we comprehend the dark side of our choices? Ultimately Johnson discovers how we can design our machines and technology to become the reflection of our better selves?

    Discovery Days is a free outreach program sponsored by the Colleges of Science and Engineering. This highly popular event was developed to allow students to explore more of the world around them by engaging their minds in interactive exhibits. Students are able to participate in a number of hands-on activities including examining live specimens and making polymers. Discovery Days encourages students to develop their own questions and ideas regarding the sciences while creating a deeper interest to learn more. Because many displays are interactive and include live animal exhibits, we ask that children be supervised at all times, including during breaks to the restroom.
