Timothy Weaver, a former life scientist, creates immersive, hypnotic work around disappearing habitat and species; iET+I brings him to Cornish to show his most recent projects.

Timothy Weaver’s recent interactive installation, live cinema, video and sonic projects have been featured at all over the Western Hemisphere. On Saturday, March 22, at 8:00 p.m., the Institute of Emergent Technology + Intermedia (iET+I) brings him to the Studio Theater of the Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center to display and perform his newest work. Weaver’s “concerted objective is to contribute to the restoration of ecological memory through a process of speculative inquiry along the art | science interface.” Weaver, who is Associate Professor, Director, Emergent Digital Practice at the University of Denver, will also direct a workshop at Cornish: Transcoding of Complex Data to Sonic and Video Output w/ MAX/MSP. This is a free event.

Robert Campbell, who along with Jarrad Powell, guides iET+I, is excited to bring Timothy Weaver to Cornish. “Tim is a friend and colleague I’ve known for several years. We met at the Santa Fe International New Media Festival, where we have both been exhibiting work for the past several years. He is an artist/scientist whose conceptual installation and performance work I respect.”

Campbell thinks Weaver is breaking some new ground with work he thinks could inform the institute. “He works with traditional materials in conjunction with scientific data to recast visual and aural information using structural elements of transcoding. Additionally, I have known about his successful new Emergent Digital Practice program that he directs at the University of Denver, and have wanted to bring him here as an advisor and consultant to iET+I as well.”

Timothy Weaver received an MFA in sculpture from University of Colorado at Boulder in 1993, an MS in environmental engineering and a BS in microbiology from Purdue University. Weaver’s research areas include biomedia, biomimetics, bioacoustics, biological narrativity, emerging interactions, live cinema, immersive environments, sustainable design, ecosemiotics, and ecological memory.
