Drift & Migrate/Fluir & Migrar

Drift & Migrate is the first Algae Society exhibition in Spain produced with the Complutense Research Group “Art, Technology and Social Commitment – ARTECS.” For this exhibition Algae Society members collaborated with the ARTECS and the MIAC graduate students to create artworks focused on the environmental impact of human activity and how this affects the existence of algae worldwide. The mission for the exhibit was to gain a better understanding of our symbiotic relationship with non-human organisms and 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 and a review of the exhibit can be found here.

This show includes Artists from The Algae Society, students and professors of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in addition to the works created by students in the “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 welcomed 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.
