To encourage participation in this question, we:
Organized events, such as a bat listening workshop, a bird watching workshop, student photo contest and video screenings, and a visit by animal musician/philosopher David Rothenberg.
Produced a video to help explain the project.
Invited staff, students and faculty to write about their experiences with animals on campus, for publication on our blog.
Invited campus planners to an open discussion, “Framing Campus as an Ecosystem”.
Created themed assignments for students in the Art and Technology courses in the Department of Art, so they could participate in the juried exhibition.
Commissioned new work from local professional artists whose work relates to the theme of BioPresence. We presented the work in Hopkins Hall gallery and also teamed up with the independent Mote Galleries to present work in their Short North locations.
Teamed up with the Borror Lab of Bioacoustics to create a juried, international call for artists to create sound art compositions. The BioAcoustic Urbanscapes exhibition was the outcome.
Gathered data on campus animals using various methods: audio data from a songmeter, image and video data from wildlife cameras, and personal accounts from campus surveillance camera personnel.
And finally, produced this website to document some of the many the artworks displayed in the BioPresence Exhibition.
