Systems help artists, scientists, researchers, and scholars across disciplines organize their thoughts and the world around them—categorizing and sorting both concrete objects and abstract concepts. From symbolic languages to ethnography, from environmental surveying to the writing of Black history, how can visual art highlight different facets of this interdisciplinary approach?

Summary of Adam’s Talk:
The emergence and translation of Mendel’s discoveries about genetics into English coincided with the rise of eugenics, and provided its most devoted apostles with a biological mechanism to justify their bigotry.

We now have a much more sophisticated understanding of human genetics, but this eugenic spectre limps on in our culture, reinforcing a view of biology that is simplistic, deterministic and wrong.
