Artist, researcher, thinker, educator and charismatic Genspace member Mara G. Haseltine will describe her adventures in the field of aquatic art, oysters and coral reefs where she uses sustainable materials to create living sculptures for shoreline protection, habitat and bio-remediation. Her work is fueled by a practice called 'Geotherapy' that addresses the link between our biological and cultural evolution. Mara is a fascinating speaker - both her art and her adventures are truly stunning!
