Adaptability + Flow

Friday, Apr 5, 2013

2013 iLAND Symposium

iLAND, Inc. will host Adaptability + Flow: Water and Weather over a Changing City at The New School on April 5th and 6th, 2013.

This year's Symposium will focus on the phenomena of New York City's waterways and weather systems, particularly the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the city and the role of interdisciplinary strategies to create flexible responses to large-scale phenomena.

The Symposium will feature the work of 2012 iLAB residents, Higher E.D. — Liz Barry, Jessica Einhorn and Lailye Weidman; and Follow the Water Walks — Rebecca Boger, Damian Griffin and Paloma McGregor in conversation with Professor of Biology John Waldman, Professor of Urban Design Victoria Marshall, Research Scientist Philip Orton and others.

The event includes panel discussions, movement and mapping workshops and performances. Civic science, urban design, embodied dance scores, mapping technologies, and biological sciences will be interwoven to give a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to our understandings of New York City's urban ecology.

Throughout the Symposium, participants share in the process of searching for shared language and collaborative processes that cut across the arts and sciences, focusing on dance and the body as primary mediators of experience, imagination, and knowing.

Admission is $5–$20, sliding scale. Check our website for further details.
