Contemporary art is often criticised for being inaccessible and elitist; the distance at which contemporary art often keeps its viewers is an apt metaphor for the distance between science and society. Both use technical, difficult to understand language and both have a tendency to become so immersed in their own specialization that communication with non-experts becomes difficult or impossible. Ironically, art more than anything is in a position to bridge these gaps: it is non-verbal, immediately graspable, and can be easily accessible as long as sufficient context is given by the artist. I want to communicate science through art in an accessible way that enhances the appreciation of both. I have multiple projects in mind to instantiate these goals; the projects all involve growing, dynamic sculpture that change through time and illustrate ecological concepts such as niche, non-human time scales, and interconnection. The installations will eventually be exhibited as public, long-term installations and the project will culminate, in collaboration with other artists and professors from Emily Carr, in a gallery exhibition in May 2018. If you are interested in participating, let me know! Photos to come.
