Assembly Cognogenesis at Filmatic Festival

May 7, 2016


Cognogenesis2

As part of ArtPower's Filmatic Festival (May 7, 2016), there will be a viewing of Assembly Cognogenesis, created by Sheldon Brown and his lab at the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination and computational neuroscientist Tim Mullen of Qusp. Assembly Cognogenesis is a shared virtual reality environment where two users collaborate within an artificial life world to cultivate the symbiotic relationship between imagination and the evolving environmental system. Wearing neurotechnology with a virtual reality interface, users guide the “creative evolution” of a rich audiovisual ecosystem of sounds, images, and objects. 

Assembly Cognogenesis will be on view from 2–4 pm and 8:30–10 pm, May 7, 2016, at the Clarke Center Lab.
