Workshop Overview

In this workshop we will explore Sitka’s nearby Crowley Creek ecosystem using multiple lenses to understand how our perceptions are tied to the methods we use to resolve them, and the methods we use to portray them. At the landscape scale, we will collect samples (plants, water, insects and soil) and data (temperature, pH, salinity) along transects. In the studio participants will examine material collected under the microscope. We will use drawing and gel printing (or a medium of your choice) to explore how our perceptions change with scale, and how data and maps can be incorporated into art.

About the Instructor(s)

She uses microbial images in her own art, and her collaboration with other artists examining stinging cells of jellyfish and other cnidaria was featured recently in SciArt Magazine. More information about Jerri can be found at;
