A new weekly series of discussions and salons dedicated to collaborations of art and science began last month at the Chicago Cultural Center. ARS SCIENTIA puts artists in the same room with biologists, environmentalists, physicists, and similar kin, and includes snappy topics like The Chemistry of Cooking and The Magic of Perception.

This Monday, February 9, in a conversation titled “Structuring Change,” computational scientist Mark Hereld speaks with Season 4 artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, whose elegant, tech savvy works employ natural forms and systems to address politically sensitive issues ranging from immigration to cloning, gun violence, and climate change.
