Swanson will discuss their current art-science collaboration focused on the Holiday Farm Fire last Fall in Oregon. Jennifer Hand will share recent projects including performance work that represents her relationship with trees. Interdisciplinary artist Cynthia Hooperwill present an overview of Northwestern California’s forest land and timber industry in relationship to her research-based practice including paintings, videos, and essays. Poet and fiber artist Cindy Rinne speaks to trees and they answer in visions, poems, and artworks, which she will share with us.
