Our theme is light and color, showing us the way to understanding. Rob Singer at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine has developed ways to tag individual molecules with tiny fluorescent beacons, and then to observe those molecules in the course of normal living processes. He will show us a remarkable video of molecules traveling in real time in living brain cells of a mouse, while memories are being formed. And how genetic messengers move within us, from one inner zipcode to another.

Color is also a way to penetrate to understanding in the world of Olek. Her art explores communication and sexuality through colors and meticulous detail. Olek consistently pushes the boundaries between fashion, art, craft and public art, fluidly combining the sculptural and the fanciful. If you stand still for a moment, she is likely to crochet around you. Or around your bicycle. Or your mermaid.
