Conveying Climate Change: New Media Art, Science, and Activism
Lecture | April 19 | 4-5 p.m. | 250 Sutardja Dai Hall
DJ Spooky, aka Paul Miller
DJ Spooky, aka Paul Miller, is hosting the March for Science in Washington DC on April 22. A large group of scientists are protesting the Trump Administrations politicized deletion of data from many Federal Agencies, such as NASA and the EPA, and the overall lack of engagement with data about Climate Change.
DJ Spookys discussion will highlight the need for artists and creatives to engage science. It will also point out various successful collaborations between artists and scientists, including his work with Brian Greene, the Director of the NY Science Festival and best selling author. The discussion will take the audience across the globe, from DJ Spookys projects in Antarctica, India, and the Arctic Circle, to, more locally, the West Coast, as he highlights his symphony about deforestation.
