Mark Changizi: Alien Vision Revolution
Wednesday, April 21, 7 PM
Free + open to the public

Why do humans see in color? Why do we have eyes on the front of our heads rather than on the sides, like horses? And how is it that we find it so easy to read when written language did not exist until a few thousand years ago—a virtual millisecond in evolutionary time? These are just a few of the riddles theoretical neurobiologist Mark Changizi explores in his talk on the Alien Vision Revolution.

Friday, April 30 – Sunday, May 2
Three Day Screening pass: $10
Diplo: $5

The London-based onedotzero_adventures in motion festival returns to EMPAC with a delirious showcase of the latest developments in digital and interactive design. Comprised of screenings as well as live a/v performances, interactive installations, animation and music videos, the event is a weekend-long celebration of the moving image that's guaranteed to inspire, provoke, and delight.

Back-to-back screenings of onedotzero's latest compilation programs shown over the entire weekend create the foundation for the festival and another reason to stick around the building until the wee hours – and then come back to do it again the next day!

Other highlights include a late-night performance by DJ superstar Diplo with area VJs, a video installation by Brian Alfred, and a new audiovisual performance / installation by artist-in-residence AntiVJ with music by minimal techno artist Sleeparchive.
