Blog : Tim Gaudreau is Catalyzing Conversations about Climate Change

By webmeadow | Mar 1, 2013 | in

The Center for Arts in Education at Boston Arts Academy, in collaboration with TERC and the National Science Foundation are asking artists to respond in the medium of his or her choice to the question:
How might climate change affect the future you would like for Boston, New England, and/or the larger planet?

The purpose of this project is to have innovative artists catalyze conversations amongst artists, scientists, educators and students. Presentations of these responses will happen in a multidisciplinary setting in ways that we hope cross boundaries between art and science, exploring new insights to complex phenomena.

Tim Gaudreau, along with a few other artists, presented their work Thursday, February 28th at the Museum of Science in Boston.

However, a second presentation will take place on June 26th at the Center for Arts in Education Summer Institute at Boston Arts Academy.

Tim's art presentation is focused on honey bees and is a multidisciplinary, multimedia response to the provocation of the changed world of the not-so-distant future. The honey bee both pollinates every third bite of food we eat and is under wide spread stress from a changing climate. He choreographed six costumed performers in a poetic gesture of pollinating plants by hand.
