Lecture
Creative Algorithms: From Islamic Art to Digital Media
Sunday, November 19, 2–4 pm at the Aga Khan Museum

How are creative algorithms and pixels connected to traditional Islamic art? Find out during this engaging lecture! In Creative Algorithms: From Islamic Art to Digital Media, Dr. Laura U. Marks brings media art in touch with some of its Islamic "roots" in 10th-century Iraq, 16th-century Iran, and elsewhere, while also revealing the historical influences of Islamic art on European art.

About the Instructor
Dr. Laura U. Marks is the Dena Wosk University Professor of Art and Culture Studies at Simon Fraser University. A scholar, theorist, and curator of independent and experimental media arts, she is the author of The Skin of the Film: Intercultural Cinema, Embodiment, and the Senses (Duke University Press, 2000), Touch: Sensuous Theory and Multisensory Media (Minnesota University Press, 2002), and many essays. Several years of research in Islamic art history and philosophy gave rise to Enfoldment and Infinity: An Islamic Genealogy of New Media Art (MIT Press, 2010). She has curated programs of experimental media for venues around the world. Her current research interests are the media arts of the Arab and Muslim world, intercultural perspectives on new media art, and philosophical approaches to materiality and information culture.
