Science & Art Cabaret 4.0: SCIENCE FICTION / SCIENCE FACT

The Ninth Ward at Babeville

Earth
Will Kinney, Associate Professor of Physics at UB will explain why space travel is harder than you think. Going to Mars is a daunting technical challenge, but Mars is on our doorstep. Sending people to the stars will require a revision of the fundamental laws of the universe.

Gary Nickard and Patty Wallace will wade into the iconic pool of science fiction horror that is Frankenstein, the genesis of the novel and its quirky architecture in historical context, and Burke & Kant's notion of the sublime.

Tomás Henriques, assistant professor at Buffalo State College will play a META-EVI, a customized electronic valve instrument that has been expanded with extra sensors that allow innovative performance techniques.

John Massier, Visual Arts Curator at Hallwalls, will read a couple pages of Philip K. Dick and screen a short video clip.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
