Observation of Change: Art and Science Collaboration

Activity: PresentationConference presentation

Description

Observation of Change is a Nordic art project together with nature restoration project "Observation - An observation of change" at the Junkerdal area in Saltdal municipality, Norway. A group of artists will document, demonstrate and reflect on restoration, tackle the complex emotions of visitors and community and bring artists and scientists into dialogue. The project enhances comprehension of human collaboration with nature. Artists use scientific data and observations as materials for artistic practice. Artworks, such as environmental art, art photography and art installations will be shown in an art-science exhibition, together with visual and accessible presentations of the natural science research presentation. The exhibition aims to give visitors opportunities to consider restoration and humans' place in more-than-human nature. The project will promote knowledge on biodiversity, discussion of agency and rights of nature, human desires for nature and collaboration with nature.
