Augment the Astrolabe - Creative Interplay Between the Arts & Sciences
From Chris Mottola
This was a recording of an event that I hosted at UNH in the springtime of 2022. (the first couple minutes were chopped off b/c vid cam wasn't ready yet.)
"Augment the Astrolabe - Creative Interplay Between the Arts and Sciences will be a colorful exhibition on the creative dance between the arts, sciences, and the evolution of language, hosted by fifth-year interdisciplinary honors student Christopher Mottola. Special guest speaker, Professor Nathan Schwadron, who teaches an honors class in the Copernican Lens Symposium: Searching for Our Place in the Universe, will also be giving a presentation on the theme. There will be profound ideas, live demonstrations, and interactive resources shared in an atmosphere of scientific inquiry and creative fervor. Come explore the macrocosm of imagination and discovery through a lens of collaboration, investigation, and creative self-expression. Embrace the infinitude; I hope to see you there.~"
