This session of Spotlight with Gary Vikan will feature a lively on-stage conversation with Dr. Will Noel, curator of the Walters exhibition Lost and Found: The Secrets of Archimedes. Dr. Noel will talk about his groundbreaking collaborations with computer and imaging scientists, conservators, top math scholars and others to expose an astonishing story of the Archimedes Palimpsest, a document that ultimately raises questions about the very stability of knowledge. Noel is the author of The Archimedes Codex: How a Medieval Prayer Book Is Revealing the True Genius of Antiquity's Greatest Scientist (2009). He will be available to sign copies of the book. The book is available in the Museum Store.

8-8:20 p.m.                         A Touch and Feel Dance (Semantic Satiation)

Meghan Flanigan (direction and dance performance)
Andy Hayleck (sound performance)
Eve Hanan (touch performance)
 
Partially inspired by the upcoming exhibition, Lost and Found: The Secrets of Archimedes, this dance and sound collaboration will explore notions of disappearance and memory. The work developed from an exploration of these statements:
First: Semantic satiation is the phenomena when a word is repeated many times, it will lose its meaning.
Second: Unlike sounds and images, we have no way of recording moments of touch. We rely on memory and personal contact to transmit tactile knowledge.

The resulting idiosyncratic work brings together experiments with cassette tape, memories of the cha-cha and gestures that are elegantly extreme.

Meghan Flanigan explores bodily memory, experience and presence through dance, video and performance actions. Andy Hayleck works with sound, photography and video. Eve Hanan explores the somatic experience and expression of liminality in her dances, her writing, and her work as a conflict resolution facilitator.
