Description

EVENT:
Join us for an evening with Scott Kildall and Andrew Erdmann. Scott will be presenting his investigations over the last several years with transforming data into physical installations and sculptures. With the proposition that data has physical consequences, he will look at other artists and cultures that have physicalized data such as the Inca Quipus and the Marshall Island Stick Charts and tie into a conversation of artifact as social exchange. Finally, he will show his current installation work, Sonaqua, which is an artwork where he sonifies water quality using DIY water sensors.

Andrew will discuss water quality and give information about water use, conservation, the sources of water in Santa Fe. He will paint an overview of the City of Santa Fe’s drinking water system, how it’s managed, and how it interacts with the environment in and around the city.
