She demonstrates how her AR and VR creations allow scientists in collaboration with their robots to explore the unknown! Learn about the tech used to discover new worlds and propel humanity into the very outer-reaches of everything we’ve ever known. This presentation will be accompanied by Pas de Deux – a dancer interacts with a robot and the two together create the work. We invite the audience to imagine the ways technology reflects our humanity and interrogates it.
