Oceans 4.0: Liverpool Laser Talks


Event passed

Tickets no longer available.

Join artists Marco Barotti, Robertina Šebjanič and Gjino Šutić plus Dr Rachel Jeffreys, Ecologist at University of Liverpool, for the next in a series of Liverpool LASER talks.

To open our new exhibition, Oceans 4.0, we have partnered with Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendevouz) to bring an afternoon of talks from artists who are pushing the boundaries of artist research and deepening engagement with science.

Introduced by Mark Roughley, Programme Leader for MA Art in Science at Liverpool John Moores University, we will be joined by Oceans 4.0 exhibiting artists Marco Barotti, Robertina Šebjanič and Gjino Šutić as well as Dr. Rachel Jeffreys, Ecologist from University of Liverpool.

Each of the artists will discuss their projects currently exhibited in Oceans 4.0 which monitor, reflect and imagine the future of our threatened oceans. The exhibition brings together new work emerging from recent artists’ residencies organised across Europe by the European Media Art Platform (EMAP) and opens up the conversation about FACT's 2020 focus on the environmental challenge facing our planet.

Dr. Rachel Jeffreys will present You are what you eat: How seals can help us to understand climate change and give us a fascinating insight in to how scientists from Liverpool are using state-of-the-art stable isotope techniques to understand how climate change is affecting two ice-dependent Arctic predators, the ringed and harp seal.
