TALKS
Chocolate and Technology with Timothy Childs [http://www.tcho.com]
--------------------------------------------------------------
What happens when high-tech chocolate factory meets high-tech research lab? Timothy Childs leverages his experience as a serial entrepreneur, super taster and inventor to engage a multidisciplinary community around the art and science of making the world's best chocolate. Timothy will also be packing samples of his various chocolates; see if you taste buds can match his!

Timothy is Co-Founder and Chief Chocolate Officer of TCHO chocolate located at Pier 17 in San Francisco.

8 Types of Synesthesia in 8 Minutes with Bryan Alvarez
--------------------------------------------------------------
Doctoral candidate, Bryan Alvarez is a grapheme-color synesthete, researching synesthesia at UC Berkeley. His talk will be an open discussion interactively showcasing several different forms of synesthesia. Don't leave your senses at home. You will want all of them, least you find out your mind is blended in more ways than you thought.

FutureSense: Technologically Augmented Senses with Matt Bell
--------------------------------------------------------------
Although we were born with a limited number of senses, we can use technological means to greatly enhance our sensory capabilities. As interface technologies improve, these new senses will be able to be so closely tied to our brains that they may begin to feel like natural extensions of our own sensory abilities. We will discuss a wide variety of potential new senses and demonstrate a prototype.

Matt Bell is an inventor, artist, and entrepreneur who has done a wide variety of projects including gesture-based interactive displays, intricate laser-cut sculpture, and, most recently, floating art for the Ephemerisle festival.

The Neuroscience of Vision by Jascha Sohl-Dickstein
--------------------------------------------------------------
Are we hallucinating *all the time*? Jascha will discuss how photons hitting your retina become perceptions in your brain, with as many awesome tangents as can fit in 10 minutes.

Jascha is a graduate student with the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. He designs learning algorithms and neural networks.

INTERACT
Flavor Tripping
--------------------------------------------------------------
Miracle fruit is a berry containing a special chemical "miraculin", which when eaten changes your taste buds to temporarily make many things taste sweet that ordinarily wouldn't. Join us, take some miracle fruit tablets, and experience food in a strange new way. Limes will taste like the sweetest, most perfect limeade ever. Oranges (already quite sweet) taste like they were imported from an Alien world or plucked straight from the Garden of Eden.

ART
Painted Original Scores by Amanda Schoofs [http://www.myspace.com/amandaschoofs]
--------------------------------------------------------------
Amanda is fascinated with the nuances and transformations of the color of substance and sound. This fascination has led her to study the intimate correlation between visual and sound art. Her work as a composer, vocal improviser, and visual artist has timbral and textural exploration in common. Recently, she has been exploring artistic representations of sound by experimenting with different forms of notation: using variations of color and intensity to represent musical parameters, exploring the use of fragmented text, and combining Western musical aesthetics with popular/mainstream musical ideas. Amanda will explain her process and then debut a live painting set to music.

Light Painting by Ed Hsu [http://www.edihsu.com]
-------------------------------------------------------
Artist Ed Hsu has been utilizing the medium of light, derived from his experiments into digital painting, to portray the spiritual light in ourselves, surrounding living beings, and our environments.

Based out of San Francisco, he has been peforming this year in BRC, Los Angeles, Portland, Pittsburgh, and New York City.

MUSIC
--------------------------------------------------------------
LUX (aka Rodman) has been ripping up dancefloors, terrorizing subwoofers, and messing up heads up and down the California coastline for many years.
