STEMarts@PASEO: Anansi Charter School
September 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am UTC+0| Free
Andy Wagener of New York will share his process for creating project installations around complex social and environmental issues with 64 students. (Not open to the public.)
Andy brings CLOUDNET to PASEO 2019. CLOUDNET is an ode to the vast fishing communities that have helped build and sustain Cadiz Bay (Spain) throughout its history. Using a wide variety of netting utilized in fishing, CLOUDNET is activated by the movement of the observer, as pulses of light energize the cloud from within. It also shares the stories and hardships of local fishermen today via recorded interviews, highlighting the devastating phenomenon of ‘ghost fishing’ where lost, dumped or abandoned fishing gear continues to ensnare fish and marine organisms.
For the PASEO youth program, Andy will be visiting Anansi Charter School to share his process for creating project installations around complex social and environmental issues. Students will create napkin sketches for their own eco-installation, applying the artist’s approach to raising awareness to environmental challenges.
