Art and Science
The central question that drives this project is:
How can our art, and art as a whole, act as a motivator towards stewardship and ethical behaviour, without becoming prescriptive or didactic?
This question extends into a larger discussion about how art can be ecologically accountable.
By engaging in real ecological issues in times when scientific knowledge is contested, suppressed or unsupported, we feel a responsibility to learn and draw from grounded scientific perspectives, while maintaining a sense of wonder and possibility of the unknown.
We strive to maintain a balance between art and science by approaching multiple perspectives at once: by talking and working with scientists, honouring our own experiences, and by imagining the perspectives of salmon, themselves.
