Join us for an evening of food, drinks and conversation as artist Dan Peterman and physicist Heinrich Jaeger discuss how their collaboration generated the sculptural installation Slipping and Jamming: Variable Installation of Z-Forms.  

Slipping and Jamming is an art installation by Peterman created from randomly placed elements linked solely by friction rather than fasteners and that autonomously configure to attain load-bearing capability. 

This event is organized by the Arts, Science and Culture Initiative at the University of Chicago. The installation is supported by the University of Chicago’s Public Art Committee and is on view in the William Eckhardt Research Center through November 30, 2017 as part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
