IFF in The Brooklyn Rail

The December 2017 issue of The Brooklyn Rail features a special section on Art, Science and the Question of Convergence, guest curated by Taney Roniger. The section includes an essay by IFF Director Margaret Wertheim about figuring and material play practice as experiential and epistemic bridges between the domains of the sciences and the arts. This splendid collection of essays emerged out of a recent online symposium – Strange Attractors – about art&science, hosted by Roniger and the CUE Art Foundation in New York. The issue also includes an interview with Donna Haraway and her essential new book Staying with the Troubles: Making Kin in the Chthulucene, which also discusses the IFF’s Crochet Coral Reef project.
