Here are a few photos of my large-scale ceramic coral reef wall installation - Our Changing Seas: A Coral Reef Story - which is currently on display at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) “Art of Science and Technology” gallery at 12th and H Streets, NW in Washington, D.C. The AAAS Gallery is open to the public weekdays from 9 am - 5 pm.
Our Changing Seas is a creative outreach project that aims to inspire coral reef stewardship and policy change. It is the culmination of my master’s thesis at Brown University’s Center for Environmental Studies with coursework at the Rhode Island School of Design. The design of the piece is informed by interviews I conducted with marine researchers, artists, and marine environmental professionals. Our Changing Seas debuted in the lobby of the Herbert C. Hoover Building in Washington, DC from April 15 through August 4, 2011, and was hosted by NOAA and the US Department of Commerce.
