Antarctica, photo by Andrea Polli

On the heels of last week’s Polar Vortex — which sent temperatures across the country plunging to record lows — it seems appropriate that this week’s guest is artist Andrea Polli. Andrea’s work deals heavily with climate and weather. For her projects, she frequently collaborate with atmospheric and other scientists to collect data, conduct interviews and make field recordings, which she uses in her work. These projects take the form of  installations, video and sound works call sonifications.

Andrea is associate professor of Art & Ecology as well as the Chair of Digital Media  at the University of New Mexico. She is also the co-author of Far Field: Digital Culture, Climate Change and the Poles. Her latest exhibition called Breathless is currently on view at West Virginia University.

I spoke with Andrea over the phone her interest in the intersections of science and art and the 7 weeks she  spent in Antarctica.
