ARTIST - Acting as an aesthetic liaison between food scientists and the public, Los Angeles-based artist Jessica Rath has created Take me to the apple breeder, a collaborative project with Cornell University's Plant Genetics Resource Unit in Geneva, NY, a living laboratory famously referred to as the "Noah's ark of orchards" in Michael Pollan's Botany of Desire. The resulting porcelain sculptures of odd, endangered apples and a photographic series capturing the extreme architecture of new apple breeds is traveling exhibition premiering at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in 2012. Jessica has recently exhibited solo projects at Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design and at the Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA. She is the recipient of a Center for Cultural Innovation Grant, two Artist Completion Grants from the Durfee Foundation, a Metrolab Commission Grant, and the Bridge Residency Award from Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, CA. She received her B.A. in Sociology from University of Missouri and her MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1996.

This talk is on how art intersects with science.
