Eureka Moments: Vernissage and Exhibition
Every year, to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion and work, SPACE chooses a general theme–this year, what we’re calling “Eureka Moments.” While the term may be romanticized and over-hyped in our culture, we are using it to draw attention not only to moments of breakthrough or insight or creation, but also to the processes and works that precede such moments.
This exhibition is a celebration of the works-in-progress and processes behind a range of projects, projects pursued both individually and in groups, by students and faculty across a number of disciplines. Several of the projects involve interdisciplinary collaboration, and all of them inspire us to consider the context of Eureka Moments, to acknowledge the ground that prepares us for discovery and invention, and to continue to explore new directions and deepen our knowledge.
If you’d like to get involved in communicating and collaborating with others this year through SPACE, get in touch with us–we’d love to hear from you! And enjoy the exhibition.
