Free, everyone welcome to attend!

In 2007, artist Katie Paterson made audio recordings of retreating Icelandic glaciers into ice records and played them until they melted. Her work expanded knowledge about the kinds of data that patriarchal science considers important. Artist Bev Pike will facilitate a discussion about methods of knowledge-making in climate science.
