Interactive installations focusing on local environmental awareness, as featured in this past summer's Current:LA Water public art biennial.

In collaboration with UCLA evolutionary biologist Charles Taylor and nanotechnology expert Olivia Osborne, the Art|Sci Collective* will introduce the region's resident bird species and talk about the preciousness of water. Experience bird song in its purest form—unsullied by the noise of daily activities—with our bird mimicking contraption. The Art|Sci Collective* also presents a sculptural installation consisting of glass jars containing water from throughout the region that sets the stage for a water awareness workshop that includes instructions for creative tasks on the topic that participants can perform and upload to waterbodies.org.

* Art|Sci Collective core members for this project are Dawn Faelnar, Claudia Jacques, Mick Lorusso, and Victoria Vesna with contributions from Judy Kim
