art + science + collective thinking


Students learn technological and analog art practices alongside conservation biology in Tambopata, Peru. Collaborating professors include conservation biologists Letty Salinas Sánchez and Samia Carrillo-Percastegui.

Lucy HG Solomon introduces student artists to interdisciplinary practices that orient their designs to ecosystemic thinking. She teaches art in tandem with scientific researchers and emphasizes technological innovation that is grounded in environmental ethics. At California State University San Marcos, she teaches a range of art and design courses centered around sustainability and the environment, including: Data Visualization; Art and Science; Art, Technology, and the Environment; Design and Invention; Materials and Processes; and Digital and Media Arts.
