Natural Consequences: The Geoscience Embroideries of Bonnie Peterson


The urgency of climate change motivates Bonnie Peterson’s artwork. She examines geophysical climate issues in order to design explanations for some of the difficult modeling scenarios in environmental science and draw these concepts on paper or embroider them onto silk fabrics. Her recent environmental work originated during artist-scientist projects with limnologists at University of Wisconsin, glaciologists at Yosemite National Park, fire scientists at Northern Arizona University, dendochronologists at University of Arizona and permafrost scientists at University of Alaska.
