Art and the Communication of Climate Science Tuesday 20 September 2011
How can artists and scientists work together to respond to the concerns of the ecological conundrum? How can environmental data be visually explored in innovative mediums? Join us for a discussion exploring these questions and others raised by the exhibition Making Sense – Life Support Systems.
The objective of the symposium is to stimulate an open dialogue between Melbourne based Artists and Scientists. We are interested in bringing together key people from both these fields to construct a community for future collaborations, further enriching both research disciplines.
Chair- Associate Professor Linda Williams (RMIT)
Scientist- David Karoly (The University of Melbourne)
Ecocritical Theorist- Associate Professor Kate Rigby (Monash University)
Artist- Harry Nankin
