In the Demoscene, artists create huge mind-altering images using tiny file sizes. Combine the images with music, and you have a party. Academy-award-winning VFX Supervisor Kevin Mack, whose work is feaatured in this year's Computer Animation Festival, creates abstract digital math paintings that explore the consciousness that the Demoscene artists alter. His professional and artistic work is based in a wide range of fields, from the mathematics of complexity to neuroscience and human perception. Following his presentation, the talk concludes with a free-form conversation about perception, reality, visualization, and creativity.
