Emerge is a festival of art, science, and technology devoted to creative imagination and experiences of tomorrow.
Our theme for the 8th annual Emerge festival in March 2019 is “Invent,”
celebrating human inventiveness on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. Despite his reputation as a brilliant inventor, Leonardo wasn’t known as a great technical mind in his own lifetime. He never published most of his scientific and engineering work, which was often centuries ahead of its time. To reflect on the way that great ideas often languish in obscurity, and to shed light on today’s promising creators, we will invite artists, scientists, and other talented people from ASU, the local community, and beyond to exhibit work in the Space of Becoming.
