    Willie Cole: AQUAHALLIC Exhibition Opening Reception

    Internationally renowned artist Willie Cole creates sculptures and installations that alter everyday materials, such as irons, shoes, and bicycles, into layered artworks with multiple autobiographical, art-historical, and socio-political meanings. In AQUAHALLIC, Cole presents a series of chandeliers and a 1959 El Dorado, created specifically for the exhibition, made from re-purposed plastic water bottles. In these works, Cole both transforms and exploits the objects’ former associations to realize new forms that speak to the paradox of the impact of plastic upon the environment and water as the ultimate life force. The works in AQUAHALLIC also respond to the history and architecture details of the 808 Gallery as a former Cadillac showroom, an experience exclusive to BU.

  • ENG BU Materials Day 2015

    ENG BU Materials Day 2015

    The impact of nanomaterials on the practice of medicine far exceeds its dimensions. Nanomaterials have unique physicochemical, electromagnetic, and pharmacological properties that enable innovative strategies for diagnosing and treating disease. Targeted imaging probes engineered with nanomaterials allows clinicians and scientists to detect anatomical and pathological abnormalities indicative of disease with biomedical imaging systems. Nanomaterials have also been co-opted for chemical modification or packaging of therapeutic agents, augmenting their bio-distribution, increasing their specificity, and enhancing their efficacy while minimizing off-target adverse effect. In this symposium, leading scientists will present on medical breakthroughs that have been made possible through novel formulations and constructs of nanomaterials.

    Is Israel having an identity crisis, and if so, can it be solved using the law?

    2pm, Room JSC 201: Diana Lobel
    “How Can We Pray? Poetry of Solomon Ibn Gabirol on the Paradox of Prayer”

    How can finite human beings communicate with a God who is infinite? Is God only distant and transcendent, or is there an aspect of God we can find in our own experience? Solomon Ibn Gabirol explores these questions in poignant Hebrew poetry from the Golden Age of Muslim Spain. No knowledge of Hebrew necessary; poetry will be available in both Hebrew and several English translations.

    “Benjamin Zivotofksy, Jerusalem Born, American Citizen”

    The Congress of the United States passed a law instructing the state department to register “Israel” on the passport of American citizens born in Jerusalem. The state department objected. In June 2015, the Supreme Court held that the passport law is unconstitutional. In this presentation I shall lead a discussion about: What is at stake? What does it mean about Israel’s claim that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and shall always be united under Israel’s flag? What precisely did the Supreme Court hold, and why?
