Where do art and environment merge? At this pre-Sound and Motion activity participants will work with UAS sculpture students to build 2D clay corals using hand crafted molds and stamps. Coral sculptures will later be fired and painted by UAS students and used to create an installation piece to be unveiled at the May UAS Pottery Sale.
The coral reef is dying. Pollution, dynamite fishing, deep sea trawling, and plain neglect have contributed to a swiftly disappearing foundation of the underwater ecosystem. Coral provides an essential habitat to promote biodiversity in the oceans. Is there any way to save it? Artist, TED Senior Fellow, and socio-ecological activist Colleen Flanigan acts as spokesperson for the seas. With her Living Sea Sculptures, she is able to regenerate coral at an accelerated rate. Flanigan's presentation will continue the conversation on themes from this year's One Campus One Book selection, Log from the Sea of Cortez by John Steinbeck.
