Last month, Ian and I travelled to Houston for the Systems of Sustainability Seminar (SOS) hosted by the University of Houston’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and Blaffer Gallery.
Natalie Jeremijenko, of the Environmental Health Clinic, was a notable speaker. Natalie is an artist with a background in biochemistry, physics, neuroscience and precision engineering. She directs the xDesign Environmental Health Clinic, a clinic that prescribes action instead of medicine, and approaches health from an understanding of “its dependence on external local environments; rather than on the internal biology and genetic predispositions of an individual.”
