Enacting Awareness: Water, Waste, and Public Space
May 28th, 7pm (6pm reception)
Digital Arts Research Center room 108, UCSC campus
A series of presentations and panel discussion featuring a dynamic mix of artists, scholars, and creative practitioners working on the cultural and environmental aspects of human waste, ecological education and organizing. Featuring Heidi Quante (Creative Catalyst, HighWaterLine), Shawn Shafner (The People’s Own Organic Power Project), Carol Steinfeld (Reusing the Resource: Adventures in Ecological Wastewater Recycling and Liquid Gold), and Abigail Brown (PHLUSH, waterfortheages.org), the panel is a follow-up to May 23rd’s “Slugs To Sludge” 5K walk, in which participants followed the path that human waste travels from campus to the wastewater treatment facility at Neary Lagoon. Both events were organized by the UCSC Wastewater Research Group, led by Digital Arts and New Media graduate students Andrea Steves and Timothy Furstnau, with support from the Art Department and Arts Division.
