The second Art & Science: Connections and Intersections symposium, “Green Light, Prospects in Lighting Design and Technology,” will bring together industry leaders, designers, artists, researchers, and scholars from the humanities and sciences to discuss the future of artificial lighting.

Marco Bevolo of Philips Lighting’s City.People.Light project will discuss new trends in his keynote address. UD architectural historian Sandy Isenstadt will give an overview of the development of urban illumination. Technology and adaptation are the subjects of talks by Peter Y. Ngai of OLED Lighting at Acuity Brands Lighting, Giana Phelan of OLEDWorks, Don Slater of the London School of Economics, and Matt Doty of UD's materials science and engineering faculty. Artist/designers Anne Militello of Vortex Lighting and UD alumnus Ricardo Rivera of Klip Collective will discuss their use of light as an artistic medium (if you've seen the current Nightscape installation at Longwood Gardens, you are familiar with Mr. Rivera's work).

Capping the day’s events will be a panel discussion among those responsible for executing Philadelphia’s June 5th Memorial Park, a project to honor the six lives lost in the collapse of the Salvation Army store on June 5, 2013. Nancy Winkler, co-chair of the project, Alfred Borden of The Lighting Practice, educator-artist Barb Fox, and Scott Aker of the Institute for Architectural Research will discuss their interdisciplinary, collaborative approach.

Art & Science: Connections and Intersections is dedicated to examining topics that bind research in both the arts and sciences. This symposium is part of the University’s efforts to familiarize a diverse audience from business, technology, the arts and academia, as well as alumni and friends of the University, with its innovative interdisciplinary activities and its commitment to public humanities.

Refund deadline: Tuesday, October 6, 2015.
