Join us for a conversation with Leo Villareal, whose work centers on systems and the underlying rules that govern how structures work. His immersive video installation Particle Chamber (2017), on view at the Moody, surrounds viewers with points of light that form randomized, non-repeating patterns that suggest atmospheric, celestial, and hydrodynamic systems. Villareal will be in conversation with Dr. Marcia O’Malley, Rice professor of Mechanical Engineering and a noted expert in sensory robotic development. They will discuss the intersection of technical ingenuity and creative intuition.
