FREDRICKSON FAMILY INNOVATION LAB

Eva Lee

“Hearing a Who: Dr. Seuss, the Nature of Mind, and Intelligent Technology”

THROUGH A DIFFERENT LENS: INNOVATION LAB LECTURE SERIES

Presented by the Fairfield University College of Arts and Sciences Innovation Lab

Co-Directors:

Mehmet Cansoy, PhD, Assistant Professor, Sociology & Anthropology

Jo Yarrington, PhD, Professor, Visual & Performing Arts

Artist Eva Lee will present her work Dual Brains, an EEG data-driven and collaborative performance inspired by scientific studies on human neural interdependence. She will discuss the embodied mind in the context of Buddhist philosophy and meditation, and its potential significance in the continued development of intelligent technology.

Eva Lee credits having read as a child Dr. Seuss's storybook Horton Hears a Who for inspiring her to wonder about the nature of mind and reality. This has led her down interdisciplinary paths that include collaborations with neuroscientists to visualize brain data, documenting Tibetan meditative practices, and creating animations. Her experimental animations have been screened in film festivals in the U.S. and abroad, as well as exhibited in galleries and museums, most recently at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum. Awards include fellowships from Fulbright, Asian Cultural Council, The MacDowell Colony, and Mind & Life Summer Research Institute.
