June and July are going to be a particularly exciting period for architects, geeks and any kind of nerd!
London will be crawling with mind blowing events and this is our selection:
June 13th – July 21th : MORPHOGENETIC CREATIONS
Morphogenetic Creations is the first Andy Lomas major exhibition , and it will take place at Watermans Art Centre.
Andy Lomas is a digital artist, mathematician, and Emmy award winning supervisor of computer generated effects.
Taking inspiraction from the work of Alan Turing, Ernst Haeckel and D’Arcy Thompson, his Morphogenetic Creations explore how intricate structures and forms can be created emergently by digital simulation of growth
The event will focus on the three main part of his work in morphogenesis exploration:
– the original Cellular Forms
– the Plant Forms
– the Hybrid Forms
Within each phase Andy Lomas will be exploring different ways of viewing the work, and how each representation reveals different aspects of the original data that comes from the simulations.
As part of the main exhibition, there will be the lecture BUILDING THE BRIDGE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND ART on Wednesday, 15th June at 18:30.
Tuesday, 14th June 18:00 : BIG DATA, THE BROKEN PROMISE OF ANONYMISATION
It is often claimed that your personal data is safe because it has been anonymised, but computer scientists know how easy it is to re-identify the individual by matching the data against other public datasets. Anonymised detailed personal data is a contradiction – a broken promise. The consequences and the alternatives will be discussed by Professor Martyn Thomas from Gresham College at Museum of London.
Wednesday, 15th June : FROM HUMAN TO ROBOT
Part of the Pure Gold Festival: From Human to Robot is a cross-disciplanary music and performance event featuring Andalou-Dog and TMBP&H‘s respective debut EP’s, as well as work by Jessica Joy Allen, Benji Tranter, Sian Youngerman, Roger Clarke, Mauro Porcu, Miguel Ortiz, Terry Clark, and Gustaf Svenungsson.
June 16th – 20th : Known Unknowns Goldsmiths Design Show
Friday, 17th June 14:00 – 17:30 : BIOMIMICRY AND DESIGN
To coincide with the V&A Engineering Season garden commission Elytra Filament Pavilion, this interdisciplinary symposium will explore biomimicry as an important field for the future of engineering, architecture and design.
The event will bring together leading researchers and design practitioners to present recent projects and discuss the diverse range of practices emerging from this cutting edge, nature-inspired approach to design and materials.
Speakers will include the design team behind Elytra Filament Pavilion, including Achim Menges, Jan Knippers, Moritz Dörstelmann and James Solly, as well George Jeronimidis, Michael Pawlyn, Alisa Andrasek, and V&A Engineer in Residence Julian Melchiorri.
To attend to event, you need to book on Victoria and Albert Museum website.
Tuesday, 21th June : LONDON LASER
London Laser event is a forum for exploring the intersection of art, science and technology.
Free of charge and open to the public, London LASER offers stimulating talks and encourages lively discussion in an informal academic setting, where people can share their experiences and participate in lively discussions on a range of subjects at the intersection of art and science.
For more info and bookings check the London Laser website.
July 8th – 10th : AEC HACKATON
Hackathons have long been staple events in the Technology Industry since the late 1990s. A Hackathon is an intense event that brings together computer programmers like software developers, graphic designers and user interface specialists along with industry process experts and professionals to identify issues and create software solutions, usually within a weekend.
In this case, the event is for AEC Professionals (including Facilities Managers, GIS Specialists, Public Utilities, Policy Makers, and everyone that deals with the built environment), Tech Developers (tech ninjas, makers, game programmers, and rebels that code), UI/UX Designers.
July 12th – 14th : EVA LONDON 2016, ELECTRONIC VISUALISATION AND THE ARTS
Held annually in July, EVA London is a series of events where people using or interested in new technologies can share their experiences and network in a friendly, collaborative atmosphere. Its focus is on the development and application of visualisation technologies, including art, music, dance, theatre and the sciences.
