LASER Talk: The Art of Conservation
In the face of such dire environmental realities, how are artists and scientists using data and creativity to fuel their work? This talk will delve into the division between popular opinion and scientific evidence of our global sustainability issues, and how various industries/disciplines are seeking new, creative ways to address a mounting problem. Speakers will be recruited from the departments of Social Ecology, Environmental Studies, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Nanotechnology, Studio Art, and also include a selection of professional artists. A full speaker list will be published two weeks prior to the event beallcenter.uci.edu. LASER Talks are always free with registration! The 2017-2018 season is generously supported by UCI Illuminations. LASER Talks at UC Irvine are also supported by our cultural partners: The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation, and the Laguna Art Museum (Laguna Beach, CA). Free onsite parking is available, as well as complimentary snacks and refreshments. Image above by Jesse Colin Jackson.
