"Einstein's Legacy Inspires New Art"
given by physicist, author, Brian Greene; choreographer, Sandra Kaufmann; and playwright/ videographer, Michael Bassett
One of Einstein's most unique talents was his ability to visualize with his "mind's-eye" the complexities of how the physical world works. Einstein once described himself by saying, "I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination... Imagination encircles the world." This ability to conceptualize complex ideas and communicate them to others is as necessary in science as in the arts. Physicist and noted author, Brian Greene, whose work has focused on string theory, will introduce the program by giving some brief remarks on this aspect of Einstein's genius and his own recent art/science collaborations. Choreographer, Sandra Kaufmann, and playwright / videographer, Michael Bassett, will then share the fascinating story of the development of the dance-driven play, Superstrings, commissioned by the Sloan Foundation for the Ensemble Studio Theatre. A reading from the script and film clips will bring the work to life.
