My video "Living on Earth on Mars on Earth" is part of an exhibition at Biosphere 2. Info below:
The University of Arizona Biosphere 2, The University of Arizona College of Science and Rillito River Project’s Art Lab present the exhibition The Art of All Possibilities at Biosphere 2, November 17, 2012 – February 28, 2013. The opening reception is Saturday, November 17th at 2:00 p.m.
The Art of All Possibilities is an interdisciplinary exhibition in conceptual and visual conversation with the scientific research, architecture and culture of Biosphere 2. The exhibition will open on November 17, 2012 and will feature works by internationally acclaimed artists Fritz Buehner (Boston, MA and Lubec, MN), Melo Dominguez (Tucson, AZ), Morgan Schwartz (Providence, RI), Ellen Skotheim (Tucson, AZ), Bently Spang (Billings, MT) and Mary Ellen Strom, (Boston, MA and Basin, MT). The artists’ projects will be installed at numerous sites in Biosphere 2 from the desert to the lung and will include video projections, sound works, sculpture and performance. The exhibition’s title borrows from the name of the theater group that inhabited Biosphere 2’s first mission in 1991, “The Theater of All Possibilities”.
Art Lab Border Biosphere Exploration was founded through the Rillito River Project to bring together leading artists and educators with scientists and researchers to explore the Sonoran Desert Bioregion and be inspired by the unique environment that surrounds them at the Biosphere 2 and Tumamoc Hill Research Station in Tucson, Arizona, and Cuenca los Ojos’ El Coronado Ranch in Pearce, Arizona. Artist participants learn about how climate change is impacting the environment along the international border region of Southern Arizona, and they create artwork in response. Their work is then presented on the Rillito River Project website, www.RillitoRiverProject.org and in related exhibits and presentations.
The University of Arizona Biosphere 2 mission is to advance our understanding of the natural and man-made environment through unique experimentation, the training of interdisciplinary scientists, the education of society, and the organization of meetings to address grand challenges that affect the quality of life and the understanding of our place in the universe.
