In association with their ongoing exhibition at 999 18th Street, K Contemporary and Denver Place present a talk on the intersection of art and science by artist Sarah Winkler and special guest moderator, Kalliopi Monoyios, art writer for Scientific American.
From the artist:
In the last year, we have experienced a number of incredible celestial phenomena over the Rocky Mountains, including the Great American Eclipse and the Double Super Moons. Investigating the extraordinary quality of light these phenomena radiate over the high-altitude landscape, K Contemporary artist, Sarah Winkler, explores how this light effects our perception, depth, mood and experience.
