Drift & Migrate/Fluir & Migrar

This is the Algae Societies first exhibition in Spain produced by the Complutense Research Group “Art, Technology and Social Commitment – ARTECS.” For this exhibition Algae Society members collaborated with the ARTECS – UCM research group (Arte, Tecnología y Compromiso Social) and the MIAC graduate students to create pieces that talk about the environmental impact of human activity and how this affects the existence of algae worldwide. The hope is to better understand our symbiotic relationship with non-human organisms and to  spawn empathy as we communicate the rich diversity of algae in the face of global warming. Works from the exhibit can be viewed on the projects page

This show is a continuation of the work of the Algae Society starting at the MOXI / The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation in Santa Barbara, California. It includes students and professors of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in addition to the works carried out by the students of the subject “Art, Science and Nature” of the Master in Research, Art and Creation (MIAC) of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UCM, and the members of the ARTECS research group. The Complutense University of Madrid also welcomes work by artists and researchers from the Algae Society and from the University of California Santa Cruz, the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the University of Maine Intermedia MFA program.
