In the face of such dire environmental realities, how are artists and scientists concerned with conservation using data and creativity to fuel their work? This talk will delve into the division between popular opinion and scientific evidence of our global sustainability issues, and how various industries/disciplines are seeking new, creative ways to address a mounting problem - both conceptually and in practice. Speakers will be recruited from various UC Irvine departments and research centers, and also include a selection of professional artists. A full speaker list will be published two weeks prior to the event.

The 2017/2018 LASER Talk series is generously supported by UCI Illuminations. Admission is free with registration; snacks and light refreshments provided.
