Interalia Magazine (Print/Media)
The Interalia Magazine is dedicated to promoting open-minded discussion about the interactions between the arts, sciences and consciousness, regarding each as an open and systematic inquiry into the deep structure of human experience. Its aims are based on the belief that far from being mutually exclusive activities, art, science and consciousness represent different yet complimentary ways of looking at and understanding the world.
The Legacy of Plastic: Rebecca Altman (Lecture)
Rebecca Altman is a writer and environmental sociologist who explores the social history of chemistry, plastics, pollution and environmental legacy and what we pass from one generation to the next. She is currently planning a book length project about plastics. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
Diane Burko (Photography)
For over a decade Diane Burko’s practice has been situated at the intersection of art, science, and the environment. Addressing issues of climate change, she started with glacial melt and rising sea-levels to currently concentrating on our ocean’s coral reef ecosystems. She contributes to the public dialogue by learning from researchers in the field, bearing witness to the actual phenomenon and then processing that knowledge visually. She wants her work to accurately reflect the science and the urgency of climate change.
Jasmine Pradissitto (Art)
Jasmine Pradissitto is a physicist and a painter who sculpts and creates installations in plastics, light, metal, and geopolymers, embracing the dual worlds of the Scientist and Artist. Described as ‘holograms you can touch’, her sculptures in new and discarded plastics, change in color as the observer moves. Inspired by nature, the human condition, and scientific breakthroughs, forms are melted and reshaped from plastics using an innovative process she has developed, representing the increasingly Anthropocene world slowly being reshaped by the things we consume and then disregard.
