The Art & Science of Urban Gardens and Soil (free)

hosted by Donald Daedalus

Saturday, June 1, 2019

Governors Island
15 Nolan Park
New York, NY 11231 United States


“During years of collaboration, Dr. Anya Paltseva and Don Hải Phú Daedalus have focused on improving the health of urban gardens and soils through art and science. Dr. Paltseva’s research concerns heavy metals in soils and the amendment that interact with them. Daedalus’s artistic intervention, the Illinois River Project, tries to connect two problems: invasive carp and urban soil conditions, in order to solve both problems, by using the bones of invasive carp to treat toxic urban soil.

They will each present ongoing research on soil remediation, the legacy of heavy metals, and scientific and artistic approaches to environmental justice.”
