  • Interpretation, translation, and/or communication of large amounts of data
  • Creation of experiences that bridge the gap between new audiences and the knowledge created within HEMI
  • Conceptual, textual, ephemeral, and/or visual works that expand the interpretations of HEMI research

The semester in residence is expected to take place in either the fall semester from late August – December 2020 or the spring semester from January – May 2021.

Extreme Art Workshop: Draw in Draw out Draw on 

HEMI has partnered with Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) to create Extreme Arts Workshops. The workshops, geared towards the non-artist, are free and open to Johns Hopkins University students. The goal is to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and collaboration through hands-on demonstrations.

Draw in Draw out Draw on will focus on exploring how the process of drawing allows for a deeper understanding of the senses – of our internal and external environments. Working with internal responses made visible through drawing, and developing skills through visually observed reality, this workshop connects participants with their powers of observation holistically.

Allows the practitioner (trains the brain) to observe events in relationship to one another, as opposed to isolated incidents.

Instructor: Michelle La Perrière, Professor, First Year Experience; Drawing: MAT, MICA

HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Summer Project Final Presentations

The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program is an initiative that brings faculty and students from both institutions together to explore unique perspectives on extreme events.  The program aims to encourage collaboration among artists and researchers to examine data, interpret outcomes, and translate results from extreme events in new ways. It is our hope that this dialog will create a stronger community through a shared sense of curiosity and exploration.

This year’s interns will present their final work and discuss their experience working with members of HEMI. Event will take place on the JHU campus in Malone Hall, Room G33/35.

Extreme Materials and Conditions: Common Ground between Art and Science Gallery Reception

Extreme Materials and Conditions: Common Ground between Art and Science by Jay Gould, 2017 HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program Artist in Residence

A capstone exhibition of works developed over a one-year residency with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute

Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

Artist Talk 5:30 – 6 PM

Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
