WHAT'S HAPPENING WEDNESDAYS

BY: JENNIFER MAXWELL

Hello and welcome to Wednesday!  I'm keeping it short and sweet today.  I have two iSchool events listed here, both of which feature the digital artist Eric Sze-Lang Chan (a.k.a. eepmon) discussing/showcasing his wicked-awesome artistic and coding talent!  Both talks are free and open to the public - so be sure to join!

I. INTERSECTIONS: ART IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Date: Thursday, February 26th
When: 4 - 6 pm
Where: Bissell Room 728, 140 St. George Street
What: The iSchool is honoured to have well known digital artist eepmon join us to give a fascinating lecture this Thursday.  As an artist working at the intersections of art and code, eepmon will present two of his art projects where use of computers play a key role into his creative process.  Specifically: INTERSECTIONS and GoogleMaps.  This event is part of the iSchool Colloquia Series.
