Environmental Change: Science and Art

Nigella Hillgarth
Center for Ecosystem Sentinels | Research Scientist
Seminar date:
Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 12:00 to 13:00

Art is an important tool for science outreach. Productive partnerships between artists and scientists can be a highly effective way to reach a wider audience. The visual arts, including drawing, painting, sculpture and photography can tell stories that spark interest in aspects of science and the environment and reinforce the written and spoken word.
This talk introduces some of the areas in which art is used to enhance science and the environment, especially climate change and conservation.
Dr Hillgarth discusses three of her projects where photography has been used to illustrate and enhance environmental work including climate change in Greenland, disappearing birds in California, and a major climate change experiment involving 12 institutions on aerosols and ocean-atmosphere interaction.
