Description

Drop by the Ruby at noon on Friday for a casual art talk and free lunch! Speakers include Duke faculty and students who have produced work during a Rubenstein Arts Center arts project residency, as well as visiting artists and local NC creatives. Learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

Quran Karriem

This hybrid artist talk / demonstration will feature recent projects by Quran Karriem, a sound artist, interface designer and current student in Duke’s new Computational Media, Arts and Cultures PhD program. Quran’s work traces the shifting sociopolitical boundaries between bodies, instruments and interfaces across a varied array of emergent live performance and real-time processing idioms.

This event follows a summer residency at the Ruby during which Karriem and his fellow student Rebecca Uliasz worked on Synthball—a lucid digital instrument for gestural control of real-time audio-visual software.
