Mario Carpo joins us for a lecture at 6:00pm at Chiles Theater at Moody Center for the Arts. 

Mario Carpo is an architectural historian and critic, and is the Reyner Banham Professor of Architectural History and Theory at the Bartlett, University College London. He has been a scholar-in-residence at the Getty Research Institute and at the American Academy in Rome. His research and publications focus on the relationship among architectural theory, cultural history, and the history of media and information technology. He is the author of "The Second Digital Turn", "The Alphabet and the Algorithm", "Architecture in the Age of Printing", and other books. 

"Dark Frames: the art of image processing" is a series of events that reflects on the ways artists, architects, and scientists interpret images to understand the real world. In workshop, lecture, and symposium formats, the project asks: How can the visual arts use scientific models of objective image-making towards creative ends? These events are organized by Rice Architecture Assistant Professor Michelle Chang to investigate how objective and non-objective practices create different kinds of knowledge. 

Funding for the series is generously provided by the Rice University Arts Initiatives Grant and the Humanities Research Center. In-kind support is provided by the Moody Center for the Arts.
