Description: 
The connection between art and technology is much tighter than is commonly recognized. The emergence of aesthetic computing in the early 2000s has brought renewed focus on this relationship. In this talk, after providing my perspective on art and aesthetic computing, I will introduce a few projects, which integrate art and technology: immersive visualization and sonification of performing arts, music effects on emotional driving, and children's live theater production with interactive robots. This talk is expected to facilitate discussions on how various forms of arts can expand representation of the computing process and structure, as well as how computing can expand our perceptual experiences. 

ICAT Playdates are Friday morning gatherings to explore creativity and innovation at the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design. We have doughnuts and coffee with networking for the first 20 minutes, followed by a presentation and question/answer period. Meet faculty, students, and the community. See icat.vt.edu for more info about specific session
