Episode 46: Andrea Polli
Andrea Polli is an environmental artist who works at the intersection of art, science and technology. Her interdisciplinary research has been presented in a variety of formats including public art, media installation, community projects, performances and more. Often her works express, in some way, the scientific data obtained from collaborations with scientists and engineers.
Her work has been shown, exhibited, and performed worldwide. She has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Science Foundation and Fulbright, among others. Her latest book is Far Field: Digital Culture, Climate Change and the Poles (Intellect Press).
She is currently Professor of Art and Ecology with appointments in the College of Fine Arts and School of Engineering at the University of New Mexico.
Much of our discussion was about how she navigates a curious intersection between science and art, while at the same time realizing her work within the socio-political landscape of our time. Below are some links for further investigation.
Here is a link to her album, Sonic Antarctica.
