MODESTO — The Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) will offer a presentation entitled “Art Inspired by Science and Mathematics” by Carlo H. Séquin, Ph.D., of the University of California, Berkeley on Friday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Sierra Hall 132 on the Modesto Junior College West Campus.
From 1970 till 1976 he worked at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, in the group that created the first solid-state image sensor compatible with American Broadcast TV.
In 1977 Séquin joined the faculty in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley.
During the last 20 years, Séquin has also collaborated with several artists, in particular with wood sculptor Brent Collins from Gower, MO. By making the most of computers and the emerging rapid-prototyping tools, they have created geometrical sculptures in a wide range of scales and materials. A couple of sculptures resulting from this collaboration can be found on the Berkeley campus.
