The audience is invited to a guided sound walk from the North side of campus, to the South side. This unique sound walk creates a connection and opens a conversation between ocean and space. All visitors will have a chance to experience a collaborative composition by Patricia Cadavid, Anna Nacher, Ivana Dama, Clarissa Ribeiro and Victoria Vesna.
Guided by the Art Sci Collective:
Santiago Torres, Ivy Lovett, and Sunaina Bose
Every creature contains hydrogen atoms and every material element is manufactured in stars through their fusion. Humans, along with their myriad siblings of animals, plants, insects, plankton, bacteria, fungi, and viruses, are created from stardust by nuclear fusion. We all function together in vibratory fields from the bottom up, just as nature and nanotechnology work.
[Alien] Star Dust Meets Plankton is an iteration of ALIEN STAR DUST: Signal to Noise, a multifaceted and multidisciplinary project conceptualized and created by artist Victoria Vesna, which originally premiered March 10, 2020 in Vienna at the meteorite gallery of the Natural History Museum. This research-based art project invites viewers to gain an intimate understanding of the importance and complexity of dust and microbes.
[Alien] Star Dust Meets Plankton is curated by Anuradha Vikram and produced by Victoria Vesna in collaboration with the UCLA Art|Sci Collective: James Gimzewski, Paul Geluso, Ivana Dama, Clinton Van Arman, Alfred Vendl, Martina Froeschl, John Brumley, Santiago Torres, Ivy Lovett, and Sunaina Bose.
