NATURAL HISTORY, a solo exhibition of work produced by Jeff Cain during his recent 2014 ART+TECH artist residency at Cerritos College Jan 27 - Mar 13

The newly established ART+TECH Artist-in-Residency is a unique annual program, which pairs a professional visual artist with the amazing technology resources available on the Cerritos College campus. During the Fall 2014 residency, the campus Technology partner was the Engineering Design Technology department. During the Nov 2014 residency, Cain worked with students from the Art Department's 3D-Design program and the Engineering Design Technology program, collaborating to produce life-sized sculptures inspired by scans of taxidermied animal specimens from local museum collections, which were then scanned, manipulated, and printed using software and printers available in the Engineering Design lab, as well as the headquarters of this year's sponsor, AirWolf 3D.

 Attachment: http://cms.cerritos.edu/uploads/DailyFalcon/2015/02/Philosophy_Pamphlet_-_Tuesday_Feb_10th__2PM_Version.pdf

The Department of Philosophy invites the campus community to participate in "A Dialogue on Religious Studies, Science, and Technology: A Student Success Initiative"

The project will encompass a series of activities designed to continue a conversation among students and faculty members in three areas of scholarship commonly examined in philosophy classes: the study of world religions, philosophy of science, and technology. Analogous to the increase of knowledge in the domains of science and technology, the study of religions continues to evolve and to address questions traditionally considered subjects of science such as the explanation of the universe and questions about climate change. The study of religions examines these facts in the light of moral, political, and cultural implications for the 21st Century global community. Join us in the conversation!

The Department appreciates the grant provided by the Cerritos College Foundation for making possible these events.

We will have faculty presenters from local colleges, an alumni panel, a student research poster session, social hour and keynote address. Please spread the word to any students who may be interested.
