Project Launch

By Leanne Elias

It’s official! Our VISUALIZING AGRICULTURE project has launched, with an exciting roster of scientists and artists coming together for a chilly weekend in September. Dr. Andre Laroche and Dr. Jamie Larsen generously spent the day explaining their research into Wheat Stripe Rust and Perennial Wheat – artists include Adrien Segal (Los Angeles), Tori Foster (Oakland), Mary-Anne McTrow (Lethbridge), Jackson 2Bears (Lethbridge), Robyn Moody (Calgary). A rotten computer glitch stopped Patricio Davila coming from Toronto, but we will soon fix that. We were also joined by 7 of our Data Studio students, who have already started their first artworks.
