Ars Scientia Artist Talks: Depicting the World Through the Rhythm of the Oceans by Javiera Tejerina-Risso

November 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

How can artists introduce innovative ways of understanding our place in the planetary scheme, while taking into consideration the diverse entities that contribute to the delicate balance of ecosystems? Some artists are exploring landscape-installations as a means to sensitize us to the simultaneity of events on a global scale, showcasing the intricate interconnections between various ecological phenomena. They draw upon knowledge from multiple disciplines to achieve this. Scientists extend invitations to artists to collaborate within their laboratories, fostering the emergence of cross-disciplinary and mutually enriching perspectives, thus weaving new narratives about our world.

During this talk, artist Javiera Tejerina-Risso will share a brief overview of her previous art and science collaborations, as well as the prospects for the Quantum residency at the QMI.
