How can the merging of art, science and technology develop empathy and new approaches to humanitarian and ecological challenges?
Agnes Chavez is an interdisciplinary artist and educator whose work integrates art, science and technology as tools for social and environmental change. Her work integrates data visualization, light, sound and space to create sensorial experiences that seek balance between nature and technology. She is the founder of STEMarts Lab, which delivers sci-art installations and STEAM programming for schools, art/science organizations and festivals. STEMarts Lab produces the STEMarts Curriculum Tool, an online platform that complements sci-art festivals and events with STEAM teacher resources built around the work of curated artists.
