Due to overwhelming interest, this presentation will now take place in Shriver Hall. For those unable to attend, this lecture will be live streamed on Johns Hopkins University’s Ustream channel.

Steven Chu, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of physics and professor of molecular and cellular physiology at Stanford University, will deliver the Carolyn and Edward Wenk, Jr. Lecture in Technology and Public Policy on Tuesday, September 6.

In a talk titled “Climate Change and a Low-Cost Path to Clean Energy,” Chu will describe new data on climate change, the rapidly changing energy landscape, and the potential and challenges in the transition to clean energy sources.

Chu was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to laser cooling and atom trapping. He was the first scientist to hold a White House Cabinet position, serving as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy from January 2009 to April 2013.

Reception to follow in the Great Hall, Levering.

HEMI Seminar: Jay Gould
Dec 2 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Jay Gould, professor of photography at Maryland Institute College of Art and HEMI’s 2016 Artist in Residence, will present a variety of new projects that depict and react to the research being done at HEMI in preparation for an exhibition at the MSE Library in April, 2017.

Using a wide range of media and processes, this work reimagines HEMI’s research using playful analogies, unique narratives and unexpected lab documentation, inviting audiences to admire the depth and fascination that extreme materials represent.

About

Photo of Jay GouldGould received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin and his MFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work, which integrates scientific topics into installation, and constructed photographic projects, is widely exhibited and has won numerous national awards, such as the Berenice Abbott Prize and the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Festival.

2016 HEMI and MICA Extreme Arts Program Open House
Dec 2 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
2016 HEMI and MICA Extreme Arts Program Open House @ Malone G33/35

The Extreme Arts Open House provides an opportunity for representatives from HEMI and Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) faculty and students to learn about each other’s research interests and explore potential synergies for either the Artist in Residence program or the Summer Project/Internship.

The event is free. Researchers from HEMI will be onsite and available to discuss their interests in possible collaboration within, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Data visualization
  • Interpretation, translation, and/or effective communication of large amounts of data
  • Response to research regarding HEMI ‘extreme’ events, collaborations, interdependent systems through:
    • Storyboarding and narrative
    • Animation
    • Photography
    • Graphic Design and graphics
    • Interactive arts or products
    • Games
    • Information visualization
    • Illustration
    • Drawing
    • Painting
    • Sculptural forms or materials

HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye)
Sep 27 2019 @ 4:30 pm – Jan 10 2020 @ 4:30 pm
HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye) @ Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level

HEMI research asks fascinating questions about what happens to materials under extreme conditions. Much of HEMI’s research can’t be perceived without powerful scanning technologies, let alone touched. Touch and perception, however, are both essential to how artists and designers learn and understand the world.

Symmetry and Fracture offers a way to physically connect with the complex research ideas of HEMI labs through hands-on exploration of mineral crystal systems and the grain boundaries of metallic materials.

You are invited to playfully investigate and decide for yourself where or if boundaries lie between art and science.
