The UCLA ArtSci Center presents Telluric Vibrations: a festival with an exhibition and symposium based at the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Gardens and in virtual venues. Each activity and artwork is generated around the Ecology of Earth and Ether, considering how we tend to both the ground and the sky and looking closely at their imbrications. The exhibition will feature work by the UCLA ArtSci Collective, an intergenerational group of current students, recent graduates and practicing artists. Keynote lectures and panels with renowned scholars, artists and scientists will provoke dialogue about this time of inherent uncertainty.

Telluric Vibrations

Telluric Vibrations nurtures ideologies both above and below ground. Using the model of a plant growing both upward into the atmosphere and downward into the soil, this festival simultaneously cultivates the Earth and the Ether ―conceptually and physically― grounding technology. This festival is about expansive network ecologies, creating nodes for interaction that bridge gaps between species, technology, and cultures. We are imagining new and novel ways of living and joining together on this unknown planetary journey. The exhibition will feature work by the ArtSci Collective, an intergenerational of current students, recent graduates and renowned practicing artists. Each activity and artwork is generated around the Ecology of Earth and Ether, the “real” and “virtual,” and looks closely at their imbrications. Site specific installations and performances, designed to be presented online using live video and AR, will be showcased at the Botanical Gardens. The garden will not function as a backdrop, but as an integrated, collaborative environment. The symposium, keynote lectures and panels featuring scholars, artists and scientists will extend the network, further fostering diverse education and community.
