Panel Discussion – Talking Turbulence: multi-scale chaotic problems with no general solutions


Thursday, December 8 / 7:00 pm


Join us for a conversation with artist Lisa Hirmer, Professor Philippe Lavoie and *(s)twerH as they discuss the exhibition, working with the wind, and embracing unpredictability in artistic and scientific practice.

Lisa Hirmer is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is focused on collective relationships–that which exists between things rather than simply within them–both in the human communities and in human relationships with the more-than-human world. Much of her recent work wrestles with what it means to be living inside the climate emergency, on the edge of planetary collapse.

Professor Philippe Lavoie is the Associate Director (Research) and Professor at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS). Lavoie’s research areas include turbulence, flow control, and experimental aerodynamics. Current research is focused on studying flow structures and instabilities associated with transitional and turbulent flows as a precursor to their control.

*(s)twerH is an emergent and improvisational collaborative composition and experimental drawing lab by Andrew Maize. Andrew Maize is an artist, kitemaker and educator (and other things too). His playful and process-oriented approach to making art uses language, technology, and movement as catalysts for larger conversations.
