Bay Area Art & Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions presents
BAASICS.2: The Future
Mon, June 18, 7:30pm
FREE!


What comes to mind when you ponder “the future”? Do you imagine a day when flying cars will be commonplace, androids will perform household chores, and humanity will populate other planets?  Or do you fret over imminent environmental catastrophe, the rise of a totalitarian mega-state, and the end of our species?

BAASICS.2: The Future brings together Bay Area artists, inventors, futurists, researchers, and musicians whose projects and musings provide us with some sense of what may lie just around the proverbial corner.  Joe Betts-Lacroix, a scientist, inventor, and entrepreneur, will discuss the importance of “curing” aging; cross-disciplinary artist Scott Kildall will showcase his project to transmit Tweets toward GJ667Cc, an exoplanet located 20 light years from Earth; former physicist and tech journalist Aaron Saenz will discuss good robots, bad robots, and prospects for synthetic life.  Grab your jet pack and join BAASICS co-founders and producers, Selene Foster and Christopher Reiger, for a provocative and entertaining evening of time travel.

Following the ODC Theater program, a reception will be held immediately next door, at Root Division, an arts and arts education non-profit.  Join us for drinks, good conversation, networking, and an opportunity to win some fantastic prizes from our generous sponsors, Lumosity and Sifteo.
