On September 11, 2013, ArtLab presented On Repeat: a unique look at the insight, perspective, and even pain that is borne out of repetition in the practice of art + science. The evening’s discussion featured Emily Dennis, a mosquito neurobiologist in Leslie Vosshall’s Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior at The Rockefeller University, and Lauren Schleider, a Brooklyn-based visual artist whose work illustrates “the imagined landscapes of the inside of the body.”
To learn more about Lauren + her exploration of the body through her intricately + organically composed work, be sure to visit her webpage + Like on Facebook. And for more of Emily’s scientific musings, check out her pretty//cool articles on The Incubator // listen to The Incubator’s exciting podcast on engineering the first mutant mosquito // watch mosquitos in action on her YouTube channel.
On Repeat marked ArtLab’s first ever public event, which was made possible in large part by the much-appreciated support of BkSciArt–a Brooklyn-based organization working to provide a community space that celebrates the inter-relatedness of science + art, advancing the case for their reunion. Many thanks to the wonderful Rachel Broderick, co-founder // creative director of Brooklyn-based arts company Our Ladies, who co-moderated the evening’s discussion, and to our host: Over the Eight in Williamsburg.
