ALFRED, NY— The Weekly Wednesday Artists’ Speaker Series at Alfred University continues on Wednesday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. in Holmes Theater, Harder Hall, with a lecture by Alfred University alumna Amy Karle ’02, an award-winning artist who questions the implications of technology on humanity.

Karle earned a B.F.A. and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Alfred University in 2002. Her lecture will be streamed live to the audience in Holmes Theater.

Her work can be seen as artifacts of a speculative future where digital, physical and biological systems merge. Projects probe who we could become through exponential technologies and how interventions could alter the course of the future. She creates new hybridized forms of art, fusing ultra-contemporary fine art with biotech and digital culture that are then presented in museums.

Karle has exhibited worldwide including at Ars Electronica, Centre Pompidou, FILE Festival, Media Arts Biennale, Mori Art Museum, and Smithsonian. She was named one of BBC’s 100 most inspiring women, “Most Influential Women in 3D Printing”, and was an Artist Diplomat through the U.S. Department of State.

The Weekly Wednesday Artists’ Speaker Series guest artists present short talks on their creative practice. The series aims to engage the Alfred community by creating a unique sharing space focusing on the arts. (text from Alfred University)
