Calling for Students to help Run an Art/Science/Tech magazine


Download the first issue (by Alexandra Morris Smith)
The LASER series (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) is an international series of evenings, started in the Bay Area in 2008 by cultural historian Piero Scaruffi, that presents great minds from different disciplines in the same setting. Sister series are now taking place in more than 30 universities worldwide.
The L.A.S.T. festival (Life Art Science Teach) is an annual weekend-long event, also founded by Piero Scaruffi, that presents a science symposium and an exhibition of high-tech art.
LASERs in the Bay Area take place six times a year at USF and six times a year at Stanford. The LAST festival has taken place five times since 2014: twice in San Jose, once in San Francisco and twice at Stanford.
The LASER and LAST teams of the Bay Area started an online magazine that will cover these events, cover the careers of the artists and scientists who participate, cover similar events elsewhere and cover the development of new art/science/tech movements in general, and publish original feature articles.
This is an opportunity for students to engage in a project that benefits the public at large, to acquire knowledge about trends and state of the art (and of the science), and to familiarize with the work of artists and scientists, and to meet them in person.
We are looking for volunteers to help with

Volunteers can contribute remotely.
We make videos of all events so remote contributors can simply watch the sand then do interviews via Skype/Zoom.
Examples of articles that we currently would like:
