STRATA – symposium

Aberystwyth Arts Centre   January 2016
A day of talks, films and discussions by academics and practitioners on the theme of art-science collaborations in the Anthropocene, a proposed new geological time interval that suggests that humans are now the dominant influence shaping the Earth system. Are human activities such as agriculture, mining and urbanisation leaving distinctive ‘footprints’ in the Earth’s strata that will endure into the future and so enter the long-term geological record? What are the creative responses to such propositions?

Artist Luce Choules is presenting a research poster:
Guide74: a mountain recording activity

Artist Laura Harrington is showing the film:
Liveliest of Elements

Artist Miranda Whall is attending this symposium.
