It's been over fifty years since humans left Earth and collectively looked back at the illuminated blue marble floating in space. How has our understanding of Gaia and the Cosmos evolved since then, and what does it mean to be here on now on planet Earth?

In this Zoom Dialogue, we consider our human relationship with space while exploring the implications of mining off the earth for resources, as well as the cosmological considerations of seeking out other forms of life in the universe. Presentations by ecoartspace members include: Erika Blumenfeld will share her work exploring connections across the cosmos from astromaterials to marine bioluminescence; Adam Belt will present his representations of primordial energies made visible as light and of geologic time; Lanny DeVuono will present paintings from her recent series titled Searching For Water on Mars; Sandra Taggart will share her paintings that remind us of our oneness with the universe; and Candace Jensen will present her visual essays on the mythic and symbolic language of Earth herself.

The Arctic Circle Residency 

October 2021

I am thrilled to have been accepted to The Arctic Circle Residency Fall 2020 Expedition, the Art & Science Expedition. I will join a cohort of artists, writers, musicians and scientists aboard a barquentine ice-class sailing ship for a residency that begins in Svalbard off the coast of Norway. This is a dream residency for me, and I am over the moon to be invited to attend. I will be focusing on my calligraphic illuminations, hopefully under the illuminated skies of the aurora borealis, amidst the terrifying and beautiful world of sea and ice in the Arctic circle.
