FRESH TALK: Natalie Jeremijenko
Can an artist use science and technology to heal the environment?
Join the conversation on women’s innovations in science and technology.
This FRESH TALK features a presentation by Natalie Jeremijenko, an artist, engineer, and program director of the Environmental Health Clinic at New York University who bridges art and science by prescribing creative health solutions for the environment—such as creating “singing” bivalves that signal water quality and a pack of robot dogs that monitor pollution.
During the second half of the program, Jeremijenko, is joined by Jean Case, a philanthropist, investor, and pioneer in the world of interactive technologies, and Megan Smith, the United States Chief Technology Officer in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, to discuss ideas and strategies for advancing women’s innovations in technology.
Catalyst cocktail hour: In this special edition of the Catalyst cocktail hour, which features a topic and a twist, attendees from the science, technology, and maker communities join the conversation with guest host JD Talasek, director of Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences and founding facilitator of the DC Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER). DASER is a monthly discussion forum on art and science projects providing a snapshot of the cultural environment of the region and fostering interdisciplinary networking.
