Saturday June 11, 2011 – 6pm
What do we know of the interconnectedness of ocean and atmosphere? How much can we come to know from observation and the physical sensing of our environment? For this dinner we welcome the visit of US artist Andrea Polli whose work has included the sonification of major atmospheric phenomena such as hurricanes and climate change, and research into scientific vs. experiential understanding of weather data. Through decades of collaboration with scientists and the urgency of issues such as climate change, her perspectives on both the arts and the sciences has shifted and changed.
Andrea Polli — Andrea is a US artist, with a focus on atmosphere and ocean issues. She would be interested in meeting scientists and other people involved with ocean and atmospheric ecologies while here, especially those monitoring both using technological and experiential methods. Andrea is also heading up the organisation of ISEA 2012 in Alburquerque.
