‘PAVONISA’ BY C BANGS
Merging & Illuminating Science & Art with C Bangs and Greg Matloff
Tonight’s guest speakers are Dr. Greg Matloff, a leading expert in possibilities for interstellar propulsion, especially near-Sun solar sail trajectories that might enable interstellar travel, and C Bangs, whose art investigates frontier science combined with symbolist figuration and is a participant in Plant Cure.
Greg Matloff is a member of the Breakthrough StarShot Advisory Group and has authored twelve books and over one hundred and thirty papers. He has contributed to Interstellar travel studies, SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), modeling studies of human effects on Earth’s atmosphere, interplanetary exploration concept analysis, alternative energy, consciousness physics, in-space navigation, and the search for extrasolar planets.
C Bangs worked for three summers as a NASA Faculty Fellow under a NASA grant and investigated holographic interstellar probe message plaques. Working with Matloff, she contributed images to twelve books. Her work is included in public and private collections as well as in books and journals. Public Collections include MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, Institute for Interstellar Studies, Custer Institute, Library of Congress, NASA’s Marshall Spaceflight Center, The British Interplanetary Society, New York City College of Technology, Pratt Institute, Cornell University and Pace University.
