Adam Burgasser selected to present Gestural Physics at the First International Conference on Deep Listening

Adam Burgasser will be presenting his work investigating a gestural/physical language for Physics at the 1st annual International Conference in Deep Listening, to be held at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in Troy, NY, July 12-14.  Adam will discuss the foundations for the gestural terms and operations he is developing, and how they may be used to educate and convey the mathematical elegance of Physics through movement.
