Past symposia :
"Gnosis in Science & Philosophy" - May, 2001
Dear Artists, Scholars, & Scientists,
this time, I am still seeking to enlist specialists in the following disciplines
interested in presenting a comprehensive outline of their field and general concepts
about their work, in relation to the evolution of science and culture.
Your presentation of individual theoretical thought(certainly within the limits of professional standards of disclosure) is greatly invited and welcome:
Language & Linguistics
the sources of energy in Manufacturing
Mathematics & Geometry
Renaissance Art, Symbolism, & Humanism
To arrange a presentation, please contact Johnes Ruta with a brief proposal as soon as possible, in order to secure advance publicity for this event for press, magazines, & media.
Projects for a New Millennium, founded by Joy Wulke, civic-artist & sculptor, has created and sponsored such events as:
"Celebration of the Branford Waters," a 1997 Laser-Light show with historical and ecological poetry readings in Branford Harbor;
"Terra Continuum," a 1998 Laser-light & theatrical production of "Big Bang to String Theory" in Branford Granite Quarry; and
"Navigation through Time," a 2000 performance of the story of the CT coastline from 500 million years ago to the present, with the collaboration of the CT State Geologist, at Avery Point, CT.
Since 1988, I've been the curator of the YORK SQUARE GALLERY in New Haven, presenting regional & international artists. As a researcher and writer of scientific themes in literary history, my personal interests trace the theories of Matter, and the practice Metallurgy & its symbolism, from the earliest times and the Renaissance to the present. Since 1978, I've been a Business & Internet design consultant, specializing in engineering, logistical, and database applications.
May and November of 2001, I sponsored two two-day historical symposia:
in Science & Philosophy" and "The
Metaphysical History of Time" each of which were attended by 45 people,
and featured speakers from all over the Northeast US, such as Alvin Holm AIA,
Philadelphia, on "The Architecture of the Globe Theatre and Renaissance England";
Steve Bass of the Institute for Classical
Architecture in NYC, on the origins of the styles of Greek architecture, and
Pythagorean and Platonic Geometry; and Dr. Kathleen Damiani of Ithaca, NY, on
the Sophia mythos and the origins of Philosophy. These events were held at the
lakeside Guilford studio of former NY jewelry
