Glass Research Fellow Jen Bervin in RISD Nature Lab's Bio Design: From Inspiration to Integration
This year's Glass Research Fellow, Jen Bervin, will be taking part in the Nature Lab at Risd's exhibition and symposium, Biodesign: From Inspiration to Integration.
The symposium will take place on August 24th, and will be followed by an opening reception for an exhibition curated in collaboration with William Myers, marking the culmination of Nature Lab's 80th anniversary celebrations. The exhibition runs from Aug 25—Sept 27 and showcases recent examples of design and art that inform our complex relationship with nature and help us decipher how it may evolve in the future.
To launch the exhibition Nature Lab is hosting a half-day symposium on Aug 24 that brings together international artists, designers, scientists and educators for talks, discussions and presentations on topics such as valuing non-human forms of life as collaborators, artistic and scientific modes of inquiry, and ethical considerations in bioart and biodesign practices.
Jen Bervin, the Glass Research Fellow of 2018/2019, will be presenting her work during the symposium.
