Exhibit

A National Science Foundation funded exhibition of the AMAZON PIRE Project

"What is the fate of Amazon rainforests under climate change?" is the motivating question for the UA's Amazon-PIRE project.  A diverse international group of  scientists and students engaged in research and learning to address this question in remote tropical forest field sites.  Accompanying them, Jake created a photographic archive of their activities and subsiquently a intimate human portrayal of NSF-supported science with an approach based on two ideas: ‘Art initiates the connection between researchers and public audiences through visual stimulation.’ and ‘The one-on-one experience with a researcher through audio-visual means increases public engagement with climate change science.
