Science and Sculpture

Tuesday, October 11, 2022

Sculpture artist John Grade is partnering with researchers with the Andrews Forest LTER program to create a public art installation on the campus of Oregon State University. "Emeritus" will be suspended between three large trees, and the trees will be fitted with sensors that record data on tree trunk expansion and contraction, DNA on organisms, and bioacoustics on birds. 

The piece is featured in an Oct 10 article in the Albany Democrat-Herald, "OSU's giant sequoia sculpture combines art and research to learn about climate change"
