Science & Art Cabaret: Illuminating Nano

Ninth Ward at Asbury Hall

Science as you have never seen itbefore: out of the lab and into the underground!

Illuminating Nano

Presented by the University at Buffalo and Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, the Science & Art Cabaret is an entertaining mash-up of cutting-edge science with art, music, poetry, and performance. Held in the Ninth Ward at Babeville's Asbury Hall, the Cabaret is all about connections: order a drink at the bar and hear top university researchers discuss their work in context with creative minds from the Arts and Humanities. We pick a topic and look at it from all angles.

This November, we illuminate how light interacts with nano-scale materials causing beautiful, strange and very useful effects. How do nanostructures in butterfly wings create colors? What makes Graphene so special that it deserved the Nobel prize? What is the potential of nano-science for biology and medicine?

Three Fold Form

Inspired by Jungian psychology and mythology, Ashley Smith's process is an alchemical cauldron where personal narratives about womanhood, motherhood, research about art, stories, and myths of the wild woman archetype who represents the instinctive nature of woman are boiled together and transmuted to create abstract sculptural forms and installations that sprout from the wall and grow from the ground.

Stephanie Rohlfs
Put One Over

Rohlfs' work springboards from a clean surface appearance and concise formal gestures into a hybridized set of works that make the artist seem part minimalist, part colorist, part humorist. Rohlfs' sculptural gestures are so adroitly specific and contained that each element—a field of color, a drooping form, a slab of shelving—takes on more imminent and emphatic articulation ...
