This lecture thread begins with a simple question: what does it mean to “innovate?” How does it feel to make something new in the world? These are questions Jad Abumrad was frequently asked after being awarded a MacArthur fellowship in 2011.

This lecture, on one level, is the personal story of how Abumrad invented a new aesthetic. On another, it is a clinic in the art of storytelling. On a third and more profound level, the lecture is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy and art of uncertainty, which all began with the two words that are the title of this talk: Gut churn.

What use do negative feelings have during the creative process? Do those feelings get in the way, or do they propel us forward? The presentation will include audio clips, still images, video, and live sound manipulation.
