Distance Learning on tonight

Tonight from 7-9pm at Art Metropole, take in some fresh knowledge with 3 *FREE* lectures.

#1 - Amos Latteier delivers a slide lecture performance that explores the idea of "models", from fashion models, to the Copernican model, to model citizens, to the Domino theory, to Wild West shows, to the Marshal plan, to urban planning, to feng shui.

#2 - Canadian artist & technologist Michelle Kasprzak delivers a telematic lecture live from Montreal using a computer-mediated court reporter's Stenomask. She talks about the relationship between speech and text; the quest for an insertion of humanity, in the form of the voice, into our relationship with technology; and the endless tasks of learning and interpretation that surround the spoken word.

#3 - Filmmaker Zak Margolis, who has chronicled the life of a disembodied penis, presents a touching and perverse animated love story about a man who turns into a horse.

(There's a mix for you.)
