Weather on Steroids: The Art of Climate Change Science
KPBS—Climate change science and art collide in a new exhibit at the San Diego Central Library.
“Weather on Steroids” brings artists and scientists together for an exhibit that features mosaics, photographs and art installations that illustrate the effects of climate change through art.
“Artists are arguably the most effective at communicating complex ideas on many levels,” said Alexander Gershunov, a research meteorologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in a press release. “Climate change impacts us all but it is broadly misunderstood, partly due to scientists not effectively communicating the results of their research to the public. I’m so happy that the collaboration of art and climate science has resulted in a meaningful, timely and beautiful exhibition.”
