Exploratorium/Artistic Practice towards Urban Resilience (APUR)

Tue, 2017-01-17 15:20 -- Don Ball

A partnership with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, APUR will immerse artists in a multiscale investigation of transportation systems, community, and governance related to the impacts of climate change in the San Francisco Bay Area. In conjunction with the Resilience of Infrastructure as Seas Rise (RISeR) project-a consortium of academic institutions, research labs, nonprofits, and government entities-APUR will explore how artists approach the problem of sea level rise and its impact on city infrastructure, as well as how artistic conceptualization of climate data can inform, inspire, and empower communities at risk.
