Interactive Art In The Age Of Climate Change
Artist and Designer, San Francisco
Climate change is a huge and messy problem that happens so slowly. Even with scientific data, some people still doubt that climate change is real. How might we get people to *experience* different aspects of climate change through interactive art?
Purin Phanichphant, a San Francisco based artist and designer, will bring his interactive art to life and show how we can emphasize the impacts of Climate Change through art.
Eat insects, save forests, and solve hunger
Dr. Brian L. Fisher
Researcher and Curator, California Academy of Sciences
While researching insects in Madagascar, Brian realized that little time remains to help save the tropical forests. Brian launched the "Insects and People" initiative to farm native and edible insects to sustain forests and fight malnutrition.
There is a long tradition of eating insects in Madagascar and insects have a small footprint, provide essential protein and nutrients, reduce bushmeat consumption, and provide fertilizer to sustainable farming.
