Title

Residencies INSIGHTS: Bridging art and science to raise awareness on environmental issues

Description

This session of Residencies Insights tells the story of how a scientist and an artist are willing to turn trash into treasure, and of how mud collected during scientific experiments can become a work of art. Discover how this ongoing collaboration is shedding light on the often discarded and neglected pieces of our marine environment. Scientist Kyle Morgan of the NTU’s Earth Observatory of Singaporeregularly collects suspended sediments from Singapore’s waters as part of his research to understand local ocean conditions and the resilience of corals. What typically ends up in a storage unit became Artist-in-Residence Wang Ruobing’s treasure as she started experimenting with the mud to create paintings and immersive experiences. This engaging conversation on the necessity to bring together science and the arts to raise awareness about environmental issues and sustainability will be moderated by the Centre’s Founding Director, Ute Meta Bauer.
