Art and COP 21: Artist Tara DePorte and her work with Environmental Scientists


New Leonardos art

Artist Tara DePorte is in residency in Marseille, France at the IMERA Institute for Advanced Study. She discusses her work with Joel Guyot and local environmental scientists to develop public art projects to create social action around the COP21 Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015. She discusses with Roger Malina the ideas of making the invisible visible- not only the science but the people doing the science and making it personal. Roger Malina chimes in with his argument for artists’ role in making science ‘intimate’.
