I will create 8-10 large paintings directly related to my experiences working alongside scientists and researchers in the Lake Superior Water Basin. These paintings will show at the Zeitgeist Art Center Atrium Space along with free talks, given by the scientists and myself explaining our partnership and some of the research and data the paintings represent. The exhibition of paintings will be up for one month in May and June of 2018. My paintings will all be based on the experiences I have had working alongside researchers and scientists involved with the Twin Ports Art Science Collective. The success of my work can be measured by its relevance to the work these scientists are doing in the Lake Superior Water Basin and the attendance to the free community talks and exhibition. As a member of the Twin Ports Art Science Collaborative for four years, I have had the opportunity to visit and work with local researchers studying a variety of fields. From taking water samples aboard the RV Blue Heron on the north shore of Lake Superior to flying a drone over the St. Louis estuary monitoring erosion, my membership in this collaborative has given me a rare glimpse into the mountains of material researchers are gathering about our environment. With this project I will dive more deeply into these local scientific connections to create paintings featuring instruments, tools and in some cases the raw data collected during our time together.
