The Stanford LASERs are part of a national program of gatherings that brings artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with the audience. Each evening event, free of charge and open to the public, will present four artists, scientists, thinkers, inventors, and scholars who are working on paradigm shifts. Each evening also allows the audience to socialize and encourages people in the audience to briefly introduce their own work. Chaired by cultural historian Piero Scaruffi.
The evening will feature presentations by:
- Mark Nelson (Co-director, Stanford Peace Innovation Initiative) on "Technology for Peace"
- Enar de Dios Rodriguez (Photographer), Thomas Juffmann (Stanford Physics and SEEC Photography) and Phillip Haslinger (UC Berkeley Physics) on "Photography at the Speed of Light"
- Cheryl Leonard (Composer) on "Music from High Latitudes"
- Caterina Zhang (Media Artist, China) on "Multi-Dimensional Representation of Oriental Art"
The Stanford LASERs are sponsored by the Stanford Deans of Research; Engineering; Humanities & Sciences; Medicine and Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences; and the Office of Science Outreach.
Free of charge and open to the public. There should be ample parking in the structure on corner of Campus Drive West and Roth Way.
