Having covered a few of Connecticut College's Arts & Technology Symposiums, I can be the first to report how incredibly stupid I am.

The 14th biennial event - sponsored as always by the college's Ammerman Center and taking place today through Saturday in Cummings Art Center - is like a national park with dozens of geysers that spout brilliance. This year's theme is "Presence, Immersion and Location" and features a keynote address on Friday morning from Golan Levin, director of the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University.

In his remarks, Levin will "discuss the ways in which he seeks to shape culture through the revelatory power of visualization and the design of open systems that awaken people to their potential as creative agents."

There's a lot going on and to digest at these think-tanks, and there will be all sorts of panels, presentations, workshops, science-y fellowship and, at the end of each day's sessions, astounding multimedia concerts presented by a variety of artists and performers.

There is also an adjunct art exhibition of works related to the symposium's mission taking place in New London's Hygienic Art Galleries and running through March 15.
