New Video Merges Art and Climate Science
The Climate Impacts Group at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia Center for Climate Systems Research announces the official release of the video Science & Art in the Time of Coronavirus, which can be viewed here:
In March 2020, as the coronavirus lockdown set in, the Climate Impacts Group started an initiative to connect our climate research with artistic expression. Working with visual artist Kate Doyle, we created this collaborative project to develop art with science-based themes and seek tranquility during the unprecedented times of COVID-19.
The video consists of digital visualizations from the three research areas of the Climate Impacts Group. The work projects the effects of our changing climate on agriculture, cities, and ecosystems. Doyle uses a variety of media, including paint pours on canvas and videography, to transform the Climate Impacts Group’s scientific research into art. The science includes observations, remote sensing imagery, and simulation results.
During the intense isolation of the first wave of the pandemic in New York City, we created this collaborative video that took form as a celebration of both science and art. The video is an intuitive record of the extraordinary time we are still living through.
By developing the Science & Art in the Time of Coronavirus video, we share scientific stories that enable the researchers to communicate with viewers in new ways about climate change. We hope that our colorful visualizations will inspire increased understanding, innovation, and action. Blending science and art, we work to awaken a sense of broader connection to, and respect for, the Earth.
For now, we share the Science & Art in the Time of Coronavirus video online. When our COVID-19 self-isolation period is over, we plan to showcase the science and art that went into it in a live exhibition with a (safely distanced) audience.
Cynthia Rosenzweig is a senior research scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, where she heads the Climate Impacts Group, and an adjunct senior research scientist at the Columbia Center for Climate Systems Research.
