Microbial Ecology - Phages and Human Health

BY INIGO WALKER HOWLETT
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 23, 2015

Inigo Walker Howlett came down sick (we suspect a virus) and couldn't make his presentation. As is our tradition in Williamsburg, we roll the slides anyway and ask a volunteer to improv along. This evening we got the husband and wife team of Natalie Miller-Moore and Daniel Moore to impersonate Inigo in a most entertaning way.

Art In The Anthropocene

Shannon McCarthy shares her response to living in the Anthropocene: the first proposed epoch where human activities have begun to have a significant global impact on the planet’s ecosystems and geology. McCarthy describes the use of ocean plastics and marine debris in her art, how this material is affecting the planet, and how to inspire others to use art as a communication tool for  environmental and social sustainability and solution.

Time and Tide

BY JO ATHERTON
@ VOL 7 ON SEP 27, 2016

Artist Jo Atherton highlights the diversity of plastic objects washing ashore on the British coastline, and how the ubiquity of this material enables us to reinterpret stories of our time. Millions of years ago, fuelled by sunlight, marine plankton flourished and then settled on the ocean floor, slowly transforming into oil. This same oil is used to produce the endless plastic objects that dominate our everyday lives. When inked and printed, plastic flotsam fragments bear a stark resemblance to the rich diversity of microscopic marine life - a worrying and ironic connection to a beautiful natural process.
