The LACMA Art + Technology Lab presents the premiere screening of Techne: Evidence in the Anthropocene, directed by Daniel R. Small, with a panel discussion to follow.

Techne telescopes between galactic and planetary evidence presented by scientists and artist-investigators who contemplate both deep time and the fate of the human species. The film brings together scientists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (which Caltech manages for NASA), Jonathan H. Jiang, and Kristen Fahy, as well as artists Julian Charrière, Susan Schuppli, and Ebru Kurbak.

Following the 48-minute screening, stay for a panel discussion and announcement about a new interstellar messaging effort to revise the Golden Record. The panel will include Jonathan H. Jiang, Ann Druyan (Creative Director and collaborator with Carl Sagan, her husband, on the Golden Record), Techne director Daniel R. Small, and others. The discussion will be moderated by Daniel Oberhaus, science and technology journalist and author of Extraterrestrial Languages (2019).
