Parallel Session: Performative Experiments in Geoengineering

14:00 - 15:30

When artists perform experiments they elicit very different responses from the public than when scientists do. Our panel, Performative Experiments in Geoengineering, opens up a space for transdisciplinary conversation engaging conference participants in the performance and observation of a small scale artistic experiment that maps choreographies and protocols of the climate engineering field: a staging of a performance and observation of an experiment depicted in the painting ‘Experiment on a bird in the air pump.’
