On December 13, Adam Marcus will present the paper "Buoyant Ecologies: Material Logics for Sea Level Rise Adaptation" at the conference Sustaining the Seas: Fish, Oceanic Space, and the Politics of Caring at the University of Sydney in Australia. The paper presents the material-driven research of the Buoyant Ecologies project, an ongoing, transdisciplinary, and collaborative research platform that Adam co-directs with Margaret Ikeda and Evan Jones at California College of the Arts. The project brings together architects, marine ecologists, fabricators, and public agencies to develop innovative strategies for designing and constructing ecologically sensitive waterfront structures.
The conference, hosted by the University of Sydney Sustainable Fish Lab, features a range of speakers, including scientists, activists, and artists. For more information, see the conference website.
