ASCI (Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.) exhibition, Planet Earth January 2011, curated by Lanfranco Aceti, Vince Dziekan and Christiane Paul, and organized by Cynthia Pannucci (Director, ASCI) for the Media Exhibition Platform (MEP).
For ASCI’s 12th international digital print exhibition, artists and scientists were invited to submit original digital prints that reflect their perceptions of our planet. Are these perceptions changing as we learn more about Earth from explorers, scientists, and artists? What is the relationship between all living things and planet Earth? What images are evoked by calling it the “blue planet” or the “peaceful planet” or the “changing planet”? And how do the images that are created to envision Earth, enable us to imaginatively grasp the “big picture” of human impact on the whole planet and its future?
