‘SPATIAL LITERACY’ EXHIBIT SHOWS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ART, SCIENCE
Big, bold colors and interesting designs will be on display later this month in a special, one-day art exhibition at Bowling Green State University. The secret behind these magnificent images, however, is that they are not made with paint, watercolors or any other usual art medium. Instead, the exhibit — “Spatial Literacy through Art” — melds art and science.
The exhibition, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 29 in 208 Bowen-Thompson Student Union, is free and open to the public.
Dr. Anita Simic, an assistant professor of geoscience in the School of Environment, Earth and Society, and some of her students will display 15-20 pieces of art that come from their scientific work associated with remote sensing of the environment.
Remote sensing of the environment refers to the use of satellite, and aircraft or drone images to monitor features on Earth, Simic said. Remote sensing, which makes it possible to observe large areas, inaccessible areas and areas that cannot be disturbed, is used to monitor such phenomena as volcanoes, deforestation, agricultural fields, water quantity and quality, geological features, flooding, oceans, ice, coastal areas and vegetation changes. Even the Lake Erie Watershed will be included because of the recent focus on water quality issues there.
