Psychology Kingdom Guest Speaker, Dr. Peter Kalivas, Anna Todd Wofford Center (Academic)
Description:

The Kalivas lab studies neuroplasticity underlying the development of addiction to drugs of abuse, as well as the learning and memory deficits associated with impoverished rearing environments. Research is at the level of protein biochemistry, neural circuitry and behavioral modeling. The current focus for both addiction and isolation rearing is in adaptations in excitatory neurotransmission. In collaboration with electrophysiologists in the department (Drs Lavin, Seamans, Woodward) we are elucidating the fundamental role of extracellular glutamate homeostatis in regulating neurotransmission and neuroplasticity. This has led to preclinical and clinical evaluations of specific proteins as targets in treating addiction, including metabotropic glutamate receptors and the cystine-glutamate exchanger. Peter Kalivas, PhD, professor and co-chair of the Department of Neurosciences at MUSC, received the South Carolina Governor’s Award for Excellence in Scientific Research while attending the S.C. Academy of Science Annual Meeting on April 14. Kalivas was recognized for his scientific discoveries regarding drug addiction and serving as an academic leader and department chair in the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Medicine for more than a decade. Kalivas’ work contributed to a significant rise in national stature as a leading medical research institution.

Circumpliance: The Decomposition of the Piano

 

A Collaborative Art and Sound Installation

Created by Peter B. Kay and Kris Neely with Lynn Rhodes

Montgomery Music Building Courtyard, Wofford College

May 2014 – October 2014

 

Opening Reception:  Monday, May 12, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:30pm

Featured Artist Talk at 6:00pm with Dr. Peter B. Kay in Montgomery 119.

 

During the 2013-2014 academic year, Dr. Peter B. Kay served as an Artist-In-Residence at Wofford College. In collaboration with Kris Neely, Assistant Professor and Coordinator for Studio Art, Dr. Kay was asked to develop an installation that would alter the experience of a specific space using sound.  After exploring several sites and many concepts, Dr. Kay has created an original music composition entitled “Circumpliance.” Together with Wofford students and members of the community, Kay and Neely created sculptural elements using pieces of three decommissioned pianos. The pianos had been previously destined for a local landfill as they could no longer be tuned properly.

 

The sculpted piano parts and the 88 electronic music tracks of “Circumpliance” will shape the experience of the Montgomery Music Building Courtyard until October of 2014. Visiting the installation is free and open to the public. The installation is designed to be different each time a person visits. The music is engineered to evolve as the tracks are played in an interlaced randomized sequence over 6 months. Sometimes the listener may experience harmonies, at other times dissonance. The unprotected sculptural elements will be left exposed to the natural elements, weathering and decomposing as the installation progresses.

 

For more information, please contact Professor Kris Neely at neelykm@wofford.edu or (864) 597- 4609.

Expressions of Piety and Devotion: Photographs from Buddhist Cave Sites in India, Slide Room Gallery (Daniel 221) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: Buddhist caves in India have been the focus of religious devotion for millennia.  Interestingly, the Buddhist presence at these sites has waned, leading to other religious groups, such as Hindus, to reuse and repurpose sacred spaces.  This exhibition of photographs documents the piety of ancient Buddhists through the caves, sculptures, and paintings they created, while also addressing more recent developments of Hindu appropriation and the contemporary resurgence of Buddhist devotion at these fascinating sites.
