Living Data: Art from Climate Science Opening Discussion
As part of the Ultimo Science Festival UTS Visiting Fellow Dr Lisa Roberts, a multimedia visual artist, is bringing together scientists and artists under the unifying theme of climate change. Artists are listening to scientists and creating images and other artworks that combine scientific data with aesthetic appeal to stir our thoughts and feelings towards response.
The first of three free discussion sessions, featuring the artists and scientists is called "Relationships with things we eat"
