The Climate Clock Global Initiative is a collaboration between Montalvo, SJSU, 1stACT, the City of San Jose Public Art program, and ZER01. The project brings together artists, scientists, and anthropologists in a unique effort to help people understand climate change. Three finalist teams are currently creating proposals to bring their ideas into development.
The Lucas Artists Residency Program will host the three teams as they collaborate with the greater scientific communities of the Silicon Valley in the final stages of the proposal process. During their residencies, Montalvo will host conversations, classes, and displays revealing each team's work and concepts.
The first residency Climate Clock artists team of Freya Bardell, Brian Howe, and Brent Bucknum will discuss the development of the Climate Clock project, its impact, and the artists' roles in bringing it about. A Q&A will follow the conversation.
