Anna Arnar, art & design, was invited as a guest speaker at the Georgia Institute of Technology for a conference devoted to the Neuro-Humanities. Scholars from a wide variety of disciplines including medicine, psychology, biology, religion, music, literature, art and architecture addressed concepts such as neuro-circuitry, cognition, and memory.

Arnar’s hour long presentation analyzed the concepts of interactivity and agency in the work of Stéphane Mallarmé as well as in recent work by contemporary new media artists. The presentation also featured two animated sequences designed by art & design graphic design student André Pilch.
