The work of the Art+Media Group fosters the collaboration between artists and Earth scientists and through highly interdisciplinary projects, focusing on the deep connection of human life and civilization with Earth and Nature.

Primary goals of this program are:

  • To pioneer interdisciplinary science and art collaborations,
  • To develop original and innovative artistic content inspired by Earth Sciences and the human condition,
  • To engage art students, and other local and regional talent, and
  • To broaden the Observatory’s non-scientific audience.

The Art Group has a dual capability that includes both artistic creation and communication. Communicating about the science done by EOS scientists and elaborating its implications for communities is primarily in the form of film documentaries and publications. Original artistic research that is centred around Earth Science topics includes formats such as films and video art, animation, non-scientific publications and media installations.

The Art+Media Group was started by Mr Isaac Kerlow, Founding Dean of Nanyang Technological University’s School of Art, Design and Media. He also partnered with NTU and Nanyang Polytechnic, creating internship programmes in which film, design, and animation students receive professional training by directly participating in EOS projects.
