UCSD alumnus Kip Fulbeck, an American artist, slam poet and filmmaker, gave the keynote address last week during UCSD’s IDEaS Innovation Day Expo. The expo gave students an opportunity to network with San Diego’s leading scientists and entrepreneurs.

It wrapped up four days of symposia, including a program featuring four Nobel Prize winners, and is part of the continuing 50th anniversary celebration. For information on upcoming events go to 50th.ucsd.edu/.

Fulbeck, a UC Santa Barbara professor, is the author of “Permanence: Tattoo Portraits,” “Part Asian, 100% Hapa,” “Paper Bullets: A Fictional Autobiography,” and the recently released “Mixed: Portraits of Multiracial Kids. He has also directed a dozen short films including “Banana Split” and “Lilo & Me.”
