This week I spoke with Andrea Polli, a digital media artist who works with science and technology to create public  installations, video and sound works called “sonifications”.  Andrea’s work deals heavily with climate and weather, so for her projects she frequently collaborates with atmospheric and other scientists to collect data, conduct interviews and make field recordings that she turns into her work.

Andrea is an associate professor of fine arts and engineering at the University of New Mexico, and the co-author of Far Field: Digital Culture, Climate Change and the Poles which will be published in September.

I spoke with Andrea over the phone about the intersections of science and art, the seven weeks she  spent in Antarctica, and the projects she has on the horizon.
