Professor Jennifer Parker to attend the Balance-Unbalance 2018 conference in Rotterdam, NL this week to present her collaborative paper with Juniper Harrower, Ph.D candidate in Environmental Science and Martha Merson, Principal Investigator at the Education Research Collaborative at TERC in Cambridge, MA. Species Loss: Exploring Opportunities with Art–Science    The paper showcases three case studies from Harrower’s interdisciplinary research to highlight examples of art–science collaborative work: a collaboration between artists and scientists in developing an educational art–science project for the classroom; an educational multimedia animation collaboration between artists and a scientist; and a large participatory art collaboration between artists, a scientist, park rangers, and the public to populate an online dating site for Joshua trees

Balance-Unbalance is an opportunity for artists to inspire new explorations regarding how to actively participate and contribute to face environmental problems, and for everyone wishing to have a better future and a humanly livable Earth.
