Wednesday, October 26, 2011
The Difference and Media project continues its Difference@Bard series with guest speaker Edward T. Hall III.
Edward T Hall III is the co-director of AcaWiki.org, collaborator with WindowFarms.org and dedicated poet of science. He conducts behavioral economic research at Columbia Universitys Center for Research on Environmental Decisions where social scientists of all stripes collaborate to figure out why our brain isnt green. He researches human impatience and collaborates extensively with researchers at the London School of Economics and Yale. But Edward is not limited to behavioral economics.
He draws upon the fields of evolutionary neuroscience, cultural anthropology, emotion research, environmental economics, industrial ecology and social psychology. Before entering the research realm, Edward studied photography and the fine arts under the instruction of Stephen Shore, Tim Davis, Liz Deschenes, Lowry Burgess, and Golan Levin. He believes artists, citizen researchers, social networks, gamer designers, writers, theologians and DIYers must become help shape the poetry of science, to make it human.
Seriously?!?!?! Guess can’t make this stuff up!
“He believes artists, citizen researchers, social networks, gamer designers, writers, theologians and DIYers must become help shape the poetry of science, to make it human.”
That last sentence was clearly written by someone under the influence of powerful, mind altering substances. No sane and sober person could possibly come up with that.
