To Be Human Floor Talk

To be human, so audacious it bears ill omen.

Working together since 2008, the artists have built a collaborative practice that unearths and visualises hidden connections between people and their environment. Responding to environmental degradation and global economic systems, their work addresses coral bleaching, increasing salinity levels, nuclear energy, and, most recently, the microbiome.

Please join us for this special Sustainability Week 2022 floor talk as we showcase our research, our teaching and our operational activities with a focus on environmental sustainability.
