Reimagining Reality:
Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation

Exhibition runs Jan. 28 to March 15, 2019

The Gallery of the Common Experience presents its Spring 2019 exhibition, Reimagining Reality: Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation. This show focuses on the ways in which visual media interact with the ever-changing landscape of culture, politics, and life. We seek to expand our understanding of innovation as more than a technological buzzword but rather a challenge to create a newer, better experience beyond our present reality. Approaching themes of the social and physical constructs of race, sexuality, gender and labor, this show will function as a space to recreate and re-interpret the world around us.

What to Expect
An exhibition highlighting student artists interpretation on the way we can change our perception of fixed realities.

Dr. Jeff Wilson is an academic and entrepreneur based in New York City. He is founder at the award-winning micro-housing company Kasita. Named one of Inc's 25 most disruptive companies in the world, Kasita homes are 350 square feet, incredibly smart, and beautifully designed. Formerly, Dr. Wilson was a professor and dean also known as "Professor Dumpster." He lived in a 33-square-foot modified trash dumpster for a year as a part of a minimalist housing experiment. Wilson has authored dozens of scientific articles, was named the University of Texas System's top assistant professor, and did his postdoctoral work at Harvard. Wilson's work on sustainability, minimalism, and social experimentation has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Beyond startups and dumpster diving, Professor Dumpster enjoys traveling - in another experiment, he took a girl he met online for a whirlwind date across seven countries in 21 days - with only the clothes on their backs (a book and soon to be a Hollywood movie).

What to Expect
A look into the future of real estate, innovation, community, sustainability and minimalism.

Sharmila Anandasabapathy, M.D., is a professor of medicine in gastroenterology and vice president at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas. In her current role, she oversees Baylor's global programs and affiliations, as well as The Baylor Global Innovation Center, which seeks to develop innovative approaches to global health challenges.

Dr. Anandasabapathy’s research focus involves the development and validation of novel technologies for the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal cancer. She has been principal investigator on several grants funded by the National Cancer Institute (NIH), and has led multiple international clinical trials focused on the endoscopic diagnosis of esophageal, and gastric cancer. These trials are currently being conducted in the United States, Africa, China, and Honduras. In addition, she and her group are involved in several projects that seek to develop innovative technological approaches to addressing cancer and other chronic diseases in low-resource areas worldwide. These involve the development of remote medical technologies such as augmented (and virtual) reality-based platforms for surgical or endoscopic training, cell phone apps, and portable, battery-operated technologies for medical management in low-resource environments. These partnerships involve close collaborations with NASA, USAID, multiple US and international universities, NGOS, foreign governments, and foundations.

Dr. Anandasabapathy holds a B.A. in English literature from Yale University and an M.D. from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She completed her internal medicine training at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and her gastroenterology fellowship at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York.

What to Expect
An exciting glimpse into the innovations that are shaping the future of medicine and cancer treatment.

Thomas J. Bilach is a sergeant in the New York City Police Department. His areas of interest focus on policing, public policy, and organizational justice. He is currently assigned to the Office of Management Analysis and Planning where he writes department policy and conducts program evaluation.

Policing agencies across the United States have undergone rapid social and technological transformation in recent years. Evidence-based practices are the new gold standard of policing. But the question remains, is policing policy scientifically grounded? This lecture walks through several of the latest innovations of the New York City Police Department (NYPD). While the NYPD has touted its policy as proactively engineered and scientifically buttressed, its foundation is often rooted in high-profile legitimacy crises that plague the organization’s image. Major policy reforms such as the withdrawal of stop-and-frisk, overhaul of standard use-of-force reporting, and expansion of the body-worn camera program, were pursued, to a large extent, as a consequence of such crises. Many of the NYPD’s latest innovative programs and social interventions — reflexively regarded by policing officials as credible remedies — often lack the foundational support of evidence. Abdicating our responsibility of relentless follow-up and assessment of these programs may result in social policies that do more harm than good.

What to Expect
Policy changes, reforms, and innovations from one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the United States.
