About this Event

Join us for a conversation featuring artist Cy Keener, landscape researcher Justine Holzman, and scientist Ignatius Rigor who collaborated over a four year period to create the work in our current exhibition Arctic Ice: A Visual Archive (on view through February 15, 2023). Their work is the result of the integration of field data, remote satellite imagery, scientific analysis, and multimedia visual representation and documents Arctic ice that is disappearing due to climate change. What is unique about this art based on scientific data is that Keener and Holzman were involved in the design and construction of the tools that collected the data as well as their placement in the environment. With this work, their goal is to make scientific data tangible, visceral, and experiential. They ask how artistic and creative practices can contribute to scientific endeavors while making scientific research visible to the public.
