All Day Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos (Multi-Day Event)
Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos
Exhibit on view: February 4- March 11
Hollister Gallery
The space between us and the other. Azadeh Tajpour is interested in the ways we receive and perceive information, especially the lenses through which we look at “others” exploring the gray area between “us” and “other”. To this end, the artist uses video stills from an American Drone in Afghanistan as a source for drawings, stills from found video of the 2009-10 upheaval in Iran become the basis for paintings, and archival photos are layered on top of each other to highlight their original contradictory captions. Though informed by different locations and events, each of the works uses the combination of the original media and the intervention of the artist to examine the layers of mediation through which we experience what happens “elsewhere”.

10:00 AM - 11:59 PM Product Hunt Mini-Hackathon
Babson CODE is teaming with Product Hunt, one of the hottest companies in tech, to host a brief hackathon on 2/27 from 10am to midnight. Hackathons are events where people convene together around a shared purpose to think about and build solutions of all kinds to common problems. This event will be an excellent opportunity for Babson students interested in tech entrepreneurship to network, connect, and collaborate with other Babson students and Boston-area tech workers. Hackathons are a hands on opportunity to create global impact by solving real world problems. This event will provide a superb starting point for the many Babson students who would like to further explore the world of technology entrepreneurship, and it will also be valuable to those members of the Babson community who are already delivering social end economic value through tech.
