 Visual artist Elizabeth Demaray explores the intersection of art and science while provoking questions about humans’ complex relationships with the natural world. Her work entails building listening stations for birds that play human music, culturing lichen on the sides of skyscrapers in New York City, and designing alternative forms of housing for hermit crabs out of man-made materials. In this lecture, Demaray will detail several art works she has authored in which science is an integral component. She will also discuss the ways that art and science collaboration can support innovation, raise awareness of ecological issues and highlight the work of individual scientists.
