Heading to the Headlands..

Shahzeen takes part in a Climate Change Residency program at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California. It was a really neat mix of scientists and artists working on how to effectively communicate climate change to different audiences. I presented my research right after a conceptual artist presented her work on imagined futures many many years from now - scary dystopias that we may all have nightmares about. That got me thinking: How do we move from cognition (related to my work) to feelings (related to hers)? Much of my work has looked at misperceptions of energy/water and now water systems. But how do we get people to feel the value of the water system?
