In “Encountering the Unseen,” presented by Sci Art Santa Fe, join a LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) a conversation between Morgan Barnard and Mira Barack that delves into the uncharted territories of consciousness, perception, and our relationship to the environment through art. The artists will discuss their immersive installations – Reflection Point by Morgan Barnard and Sacred Bouquet by Mira Burack – and have a conversation about the process of creating these site-responsive, sensorial projects. On the eve of the solstice, the mechanical aperture within Barnard’s temporary light art piece on display in the Window Box gallery at the Vladem Contemporary will be open for the longest duration during the installation. This in person LASER event, organized in collaboration with Leonardo/ISAST and Sci Art Santa Fe, connects scholars, artists, scientists, and thinkers for thought-provoking discussions on interdisciplinary work.

Morgan Barnard, a Santa Fe based New Media artist, creates experiential, immersive artworks that explore the emergent nature of reality by combining systems from the natural world and generative media, offering an experimental platform for interactive experiences and performance-based pieces. His captivating projections, lighting installations, screen-based art, and physical media take viewers on journeys through museums, galleries, festivals, and public spaces. With a diverse background in fine art, education, filmmaking, music, and interactive design, Barnard infuses each creation with a unique, multidisciplinary sensibility.
His art delves into how our perception shapes the way we experience reality, blurring the boundaries between what we see and what is objectively present. Through his work, he invites audiences to contemplate the intricacies of perception and the ever-changing world around us.
