IMA alumna Laura Chipley’s collaborative work “Monster in the Closet” is part of ACCESS: ARTIST AND SCIENTIST COLLABORATIONS at the NY Hall of Science. The website also has a video featuring Laura talking about the project.
The project was commissioned by NYSCI as part of the ACCESS project, an initiative that pairs artists with scientists in an effort to make climate research more accessible to museum goers. Laura Chipley worked with Dr. Hannah Zanowski, an oceanographer from Princeton who studies the relationship between the Southern Ocean and climate change.
As part of the project, filmmaker Flora Lichtman documented our artist / scientist collaboration and recorded a series of our conversations about climate change, audience engagement and art.
