For The Hapless Dreamers: Digital Art meets Quantum Simulations

Stewart Smith is a lucky guy. He gets paid to invent fun things. After working at renowned hybrid studios like Google’s Creative Lab and Data Arts Team, and founded Moar—a technology and strategy consultancy, digital artist and Head of Consumer Augmented Reality at Unity Stewart Smith is helping to craft the future of AR.  Join us to experience Stewart Smith’s hapless dream that will bring us to the many detours in his digital art practice takes: maintaining Q.js, a browser-based quantum circuit composer and simulation framework, creating virtual art applications, or exhibiting at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, ZKM in Germany, the SFMOMA in San Francisco. What really makes him happy is partnering with smart friends to take on the impossible—or ridiculous.

Members of the Yale and New Haven Community can attend this event in person. The event will be livestreamed here for all to enjoy. 


This event is co-sponsored by The Franke Program in Science and the Humanities.
