Lee Blalock explores what it may mean to live in a computational body, in multiple futures, in an invisible place. Blalock will discuss her new work, “NeueBody” or “n3w_b0d1es”) which takes the form of abstraction or algorithmic composition. Blalock's work represents the physical, computational, or behavioral body and uses repetition as a strategy to move past the automatic and into something transformative. Blalock (L[3]^2) is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Art & Technologies Studies Department and the Interim Assistant Director of the Low Residency MFA Program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Blalock's research includes Cybernetics, Information, Performance, Embodiment, Technology, Computation and Systems.

Residency co-sponsored by the Departments of Art and Music.
