Soil As Black Gold
Soil health directly affects our way of life. Within “Soil as Black Gold,” we look at how soil becomes foundational to an art & science practice. We follow SFAI Changing Climate resident Esha Chiocchio’s use of film & photography as a vehicle to document the environmental conservation work of various farming communities throughout the Southwest. We then look at how understanding soil biogeochemistry becomes a part of environmental physicist Dr. Sanna Sevanto’s vegetation-climate research work Los Alamos National Laboratories.
This episode also features work by Changing Climate artists-in-residence, including Margaret LeJeune, Kei Ito, Sonja Peterson, Katie Kehoe, Ashley Colley, and Jess Zeglin.
