Earth Lab : An Investigation of Earth as a Laboratory. 30 September 2017
Coordinated by Neal White and John Beck, and led by independent curator Dr Rob La Frenais, this colloquium brought together International artists, inventors and thinkers who re-imagine Earth, sea and sky from a bottom-up, post-anthropocenic position, in a wide-ranging, broad-brushstroke survey of current thinking about Earth as a living laboratory.
The speakers considered the sky, the oceans and the land pursued a number of themes investigating social and artistic approaches to scientific knowledge in a rapidly changing world.
