About the artists
Gods of Silicon
Jed Dunkerley and Jason Puccinelli come together in a stripped-down, 2-person country/rock act (Merle Haggard meets Devo) featuring songs about such classic popular subjects as: the gentrification of Capitol Hill, artificial intelligence, Ray Kurzweil’s singularity, immortality on Facebook, the pharmaceutical industry, plate tectonics, the perils of technology, and love, sweet love.
Meghan Elizabeth Trainor will give a presentation of her witch memes, a series of digital images that breathe life into the idea of witches as scientists. Pivoting from Isaac Newton’s occult studies as a form of proto-science, these memes assert a speculative history of witch science first explored in Trainor’s 2016 “Familiar Algorhythm” essay. Themes include necromancy, bogs, robotics, sacred electricity and Kepler’s Mom.
In this age of information, far too many humans still readily dismiss proven scientific theories. One solution: sweet, folksy songs to pique vital interest in the vast impact of science. Oh, Boy (a nod to Quantum Leap) features Kendal Tull-Esterbrook on ukulele, singing songs about synesthesia, biology, black holes, and other scientific delights.
