Event Description

Enjoy a first-look at this brand new interactive exhibit still in its development phase. You'll get a chance to meet the creators while enjoying refreshments and conversation.

Climate Prisms: Arctic 

An interactive exploration of Arctic climate science through prisms of the visual arts, literary arts, info-vis, scientific presentations and more.

Climate Prisms: Arctic is a Science-through-Art Experience designed to engage general public users via their own curiosity and human connection at a self-driven pace through a self-selected, multi-branching, wide range of content presentations.  Using it generates a unique exploration, meditation, piece of art, and communication tool by the paths chosen. 

 Physically, Climate Prisms: Arctic is an interactive digital system presenting research of the Arctic drivers of climate change via a user-driven interface.  Content assets are presented in a broad range of modalities (video, info-vis, poetry, scientific papers, etc.) which in turn have multiple content levels and perspectives; this creates the prismatic splitting of the data to allow deeper understanding. The content is based primarily on research from several U.S. National Laboratories, including Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, and Lawrence Berkeley, with the actual content built by a team at the Bradbury Science Museum at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Join us at this open house where you will get a special sneak-peek of this exciting exhibit still under development. You'll get a chance to meet the artists, designers, and programmers behind the project while enjoying refreshments and offering your user experience feedback.

This event will take place as part of the Los Alamos ScienceFest running July 16-18, 2015. A 3-day festival featuring interactive demonstrations, a drone agility course, hands-on activities and dynamic speakers to engage kids, families and individuals interested in life-long learning in science, technology, engineering, art and math.
