Only in Concert with Art Does Science Become so Precise

Scientific conventions are founded on the belief that we must systematically eliminate emotional involvement in order to uncover truths about the natural world. Adrien’s work seeks to reframe the scientific lens through sculpture to make information accessible as a sensory, physical, and personal experience. Taking an interdisciplinary approach that integrates scientific research, data visualization, history, landscape, and materiality, Adrien’s work uses scientific data as a conceptual resource to reveal trends, patterns, and changes in the landscape that happen over time. In this presentation, Adrien will share her work and creative process, and will discuss ideas about objectivity, quantification, big data, intuitive knowledge, and what lies beyond reason.

Adrien Segal is a sculptural artist based in Oakland, CA. Her work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, and is published in several books and academic journals, including Boom: A Journal of California, Data Flow 2 and Arid Journal. She has been an Artist in Residence at many places, including the Bunnell Street Art Center in Alaska, Oregon College of Arts and Crafts in Portland, Autodesk's Pier 9 Workshop in San Francisco, and Bullseye Glass in Emeryville, CA. Adrien has held Visiting Artist positions at San Diego State University and at California College of the Arts, where she holds a BFA in Furniture Design.
