PANEL | FIELDWORK: listening to site

Unknown license: Julie Poitras Santos

Event details

Start 2020-09-10 23:00 UTC

Please join us for a discussion between artists and scientists regarding the role field work plays in their practices. While artists and scientists perform research differently, one of the key factors in any form of field-based study is the act of site-specific observation. Walking allows for a keen attention to our surroundings at the pace of five kilometers per hour, allowing us to observe and listen to site. The engagement of walking field work is important to reflections and analyses for moving forward, now and in the coming years, as we stay with the trouble revealed by our current planetary shifts and changes.

Panelists: Artist Tracey Cockrell, Geologist Beverly Johnson, Artist Jan Piribeck, and Environmental Geophysicist Raj Saha. Moderator:Julie Poitras Santos
