'ice report' Illustrated art/science talk
An illustrated talk by Leverhulme Trust artist in residence Naomi Hart, with sketchbook images and photos from field research in Svalbard in the High Arctic. Looking at the inspiration behind the work in her exhibition and her experience of working with scientists at the University of Sheffield.
The work looks at research into cryoconites, the carbon cycle, climate change and human influence on the environment, and provides a different perspective on science, industry and art.
Quotes from the audience at the Royal Geographical Society, London:
'Thought provoking. Made me rethink my preconceptions of art.' Lorraine Miller
'An eye-opener about the links and opportunities between art and science.'
Dr Ausilio Bauen, Head of BioEnergy Group, Centre for Energy Policy and Technology, Imperial College London.
The talk is free to book, with donations on the night to cover costs, and the Boatyard Cafe will be providing a meal afterwards for anyone who wants to stay and chat over a meal.
Please contact the Boatyard Cafe directly to book the meal.
