Living Art Eco Lab

The goals of the Living Art Eco Lab Working Group are to conceptualize and create the most relevant and innovative living art/eco physical lab and intellectual hub possible at the intersections of art, ecology, biology, and sustainability, among other fields. We envision a Living Art/Eco Lab as a creative place to engage with the beauty and intelligence of non-human life. Sensory exhibits, technological interfaces, collaborative workshops, and visiting scholars will bring attention to - and nurture respect for - the living things we rely upon. Together we will explore the interrelationships between art, science, nature, culture, and health.
