DJ Spooky remixes the role of climate change
October 3, 2017
In a dualistic world where "scientists don't know about art" and "artists don't know about science," how do you balance cultural inputs and outputs to communicate the significance of climate change?
During a keynote speech at VERGE 17, musician, artist and author DJ Spooky presented a "non-linear" remix of the way important issues of our time capture our attention and imagination.
Art and science intersected as DJ Spooky discussed his journey to Antarctica, weaving data, images and sound taken from the continent with captivating live music.
Then, he dove into the history of how art has reframed science, and can now uplift the narrative around environmental problems.
