*Oct 12: **Interweave [Laboritorium] - **/Albuquerque//, NM/***
11am & 6-8pm at 516 ARTS: 516 Central Ave SW, 87108

As part of its exhibition, "/Art at the Border: 21st Century 
Responses/," 516 ARTS gallery will host an opening & reception this 
Saturday in downtown Albuquerque, displaying an interactive installation 
titled, "/Interweave [Laboratorium]/."

A collaboration by Mexican artists Tania Candiani & RSM (Rodrigo Guzmán) 
with New Mexican engineers, computer scientists, physicists, biologists 
& other creative scientific minds, often not traditionally considered 
"artists," /Interweave [Laboritorium]/ displays technological creations 
& innovations (including a live Tesla coil) in a /wunderkammer/, or 
cabinet of curiosities, populated with re-purposed, outmoded devices & 
plausible yet fictitious or otherwise impossible design concepts to 
address contemporary delineations between Art & Science, how societies 
project utopian & future ideas based on present knowledge & may 
conceptually suggest or limit possibilities based on what is evident 
now, or from the past (given available resources, accepted science, 
expert consensus, etc).

This installation conceptually questions & challenges what the future 
might hold with collaborative contributions by former NMSEA Board 
President &  Sandia Labs Engineer, Marlene Brown, UNM Associate 
Professor Electrical Engineering & Faculty Adviser, 2013 Solar 
Decathalon Team ASUNM, Dr. Olga Lavrova; PhD candidate Biophysics & 
Biomedical Engineering, Nadia Fernandez; Dr. Tito Busani, UNM Professor 
& Research Scientist, Materials Engineering & Nanoscience; six other 
scientists & engineers & concepts illustrated by artist/painter, Jodie 

516 ARTS gallery opens at 11am with a demo of the "Interweave 
[Laboratorium]" installation, during which the public is invited to meet 
the artists.At 4pm there will be a panel discussion with curator Kate 
Bonansinga & participating artists, with an open gallery reception from 
6-8pm: free, with live music & refreshments provided by Gold Street 
Caffé & Tractor Brewery. All are welcome. Visit 516arts.org online for
