Collaboration: Ecology Extended

The Ecology Extended collaboration team will explore the pathways by which the ecological dynamics of nature can extend into culture through visual art. The one-year project, taking place for Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire, will explore a more direct human-nature relationship, especially an essential response to the climate crisis.

Rita Leduc is the place-based artist, Lindsey Rustad is a research ecologist with the USDA Forest Service and the producer role is filled by ecologist and “cultural communicator” Rich Blundell.


Broto: Art-Climate-Science has commissioned two climate change collaboration projects as the first tests of its unique Collaboration Blueprint. Broto’s Collaboration Blueprint calls for three collaborators: Science, Art and a bridging/synthesis partner we are calling a Producer.
