Coalescing Currents Mural Launch at SCD
From Nicholas Puddicombe
On Monday October 24th we held the official launch and reception of Siebel Center for Design's gallery mural "Coalescing Currents" featuring the work of Dr. Juan Salamanca, in collaboration with Kristen Wilson from the University Library. SCD commissioned this augmented reality-enhanced data visualization to illustrate the rich history of multidisciplinary collaborations at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The opening included a panel discussion from several faculty members whose work is represented in the mural, including Emma Mercier, Laura Chiaramonte, Tim Fan, and Ujjal Mukherjee, along with an introduction from our Vice Chancellor for Research & Innovation Susan Martinis.
