Science and Art at the Bottom of the World

Repeats every day until Thu Jul 23 2020 except Wed Jul 22 2020.
Tue, Jul 21, 2020, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Thu, Jul 23, 2020, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

In 2018, the National Science Foundation funded Dr. John Higgins (Princeton Geosciences) and his research team to go to the Allan Hills in Antarctica to search for the oldest ice in the world. NSF also supported two artists, Ian van Coller and Todd Anderson, to go on the expedition and communicate what they observed.

In this two-part virtual workshop, Higgins, van Coller, and Anderson will discuss their experiences working in Antarctica and beyond, mixing science and art together to create powerful projects. The first session, on July 21 from 5-6 pm EDT, will be an exploration of their collaboration. The second session, on July 23 from 5-6 pm EDT, will be a broader discussion of how workshop participants can further their own science and/or art projects.

This workshop is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. Register here for the sessions here to receive the Zoom link and any pre-workshop communication.
