About Dan Goods

Dan Goods has a passion for giving people experiences in which they interact with something beautiful, meaningful, and/or possibly profound. He does this both as a Visual Strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he creates ways of communicating ideas, and through art commissions. Some of his recent projects include a 108-foot data-driven sculpture for the San Jose Airport and a window installation for the National Academies of Sciences Koshland Museum in Washington D.C. Goods also co-curated a show called Data + Art: Art and Science in the Age of Information at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA).

Dan will discuss his new interactive installation currently on view at the PMCA; the project is designed to illustrate the work of the Juno spacecraft launched in August.
 

About the Symposium

In a networked global culture, sophisticated multimedia is quickly becoming the worldwide currency. A longtime staple in the industries of advertising and entertainment, multimedia has now carved a new niche for itself: academia.

The Digital Studies Symposium is designed to introduce us to diverse scholarly media-based production. The speakers in this series are artists, programmers, scholars and designers, and their projects include cutting edge gestural interfaces, mobile media experiments, innovative websites and augmented reality pieces.

The presentations are moderated by Holly Willis, the IML's Director of Academic Programs.
