HUBweek Artist of the Day: Saul Baizman
The HUBweek Artist of the Day Series features artists who are doing inspiring work at the intersections of art, science, and technology. These artists will be showcased during HUBweek 2017 as part of Immersion, a nighttime arts exhibition and at The HUB, presented by Liberty Mutual Insurance, HUBweek’s centralized festival site on City Hall Plaza.
Saul Baizman is a web designer, software developer, and design educator based in Somerville. He has taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Lesley University College of Art and Design and is adjunct faculty at MassArt’s Dynamic Media Institute, an MFA program situated at the intersection of technology and communication design.
Baizman is collaborating with Andrew Ringler and Fish McGill to present “The Enchanted Forest”. We can’t wait to experience their installation that highlights the role of trees in our public health infrastructure.
On what he finds most exciting about HUBweek, Baizman says, “To me, the most exciting thing about HUBweek is the opportunity to bring art outside of the museum and directly to the people. And I’m excited that Boston is advancing the conversation about the value of interactive public art in urban spaces.”
He gave us three reasons why the intersections of art, science, and technology are important:
+ A collaborative, multidisciplinary perspective is sorely needed to address the legion of complex challenges around the globe.
+ The intersections are at the forefront of innovations in the realms of human understanding and human expression, providing new paths to connect with, learn from, and understand each other.
+ These disciplines, while ostensibly distinct, are interdependent and cannot flourish without each other.
