ART AND THE NEW BIOLOGY OF MIND
Columbia's recent 'Art and The New Biology of the Mind' forum offered different perspectives on the relationships between science and the arts and with the process of visual perception. Many of the world's leading scientists addressed how new scientific discoveries offer extraordinary possibilities to re-examine human creativity, and give a clearer understanding of the ways in which we respond to the arts.

about the artists:
Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez mines diverse found materials in a live dissection of American pop and visual imperialism, from Warhol to Walmart, signs to insignificance, and fashion to fascism. With husband and audio collaborator DJ Ray Velasquez, this dynamic VJ/DJ duo present "The Pop Life" live video concept which revolves around the Warholian portraiture of American Pop icons and their integration into American Pop culture, regardless of their national origin. 15 minutes of fame and counting...
VJ Miixxy slips into her sexy set with the help of New York's finest dolls! Burlesque baby Nasty Canasta wasn't born nasty, she's just drawn that way. The product of a brief tryst following a late-night card game between Sid Vicious and Lucille Ball, Nasty is old-school glamour at its most surreal. Smokifantastic, the mystical bump and grind goddess, graces the stage with her usual cosmic sparkle and sass. Special appearances by Cherry Bomb and other surprise guests will help Miixxy fill her lush visuals with all kinds of delicious bits. Come for the eye candy, stay for the flavor.
Peter Shapiro is an active participant in video’s interactive dance of life. Spawned from the heyday of the video revolution, making video since the late 70's, he absorbed those grassroot philosophies and vision: to have a camera handy, experiment beyond the parameters and elements of your technology, and help old people and children play with cameras. This project is about visual memories of relationships past. Fragments of moments, personal and public, showing intimacy, vulnerability and emotion. He will be collaborating with Robert Appleton, a stunning visual and performance artist. Robert's performance tonight, draws inspiration from the shroud that falls as twilight begins, permitting one to transform oneself, reinventing personas. He deals with issues of decadence, loss of control, and nonconformity. The Swirl Girls are Miss Maricar and Eeva the Flava. They create amazing realities with their gravity defiant HoOpALCiOus movement.
Occular Noise Machine is Jay Smith and Tony Lanutti.Jay Smith, founder of Livid Instruments, creator of the Viditar, Tactic and Union software performs with his hybrid instruments. Jay sees his revolutionary technology as a way to take multimedia out of the art galleries and studios and to the masses by way of instrumentation and real-time control and Livid's mission is to revolutionize how the world thinks about multimedia authoring by empowering artists to create with a new liberated sense of inventiveness and experimentation. Tony Lannutti's ever expanding list of projects include guitarist an d sound designer of the U.S. rock band Sinch since 1994, the exploration of multimedia performance as a collaborator in the improvisational Ocular Noise Machine, and indepedent electronic music creation under the guise of Bluskreen since 1999.
