This panel will explore the scientific research and ethical and artistic inspiration behind the multimedia art installation Siren—Listening to Another Species on Earth on view at the Johnson (September 23–26). Siren collaborators Annie Lewandowski and Kyle McDonald will discuss how scientific research on whale song and an ethical imperative converge in their artistic collaboration, while Hawaii Marine Mammal Consortium (HMMC) biologists Chris Gabriele and Dr. Adam Frankel will share about their ongoing conservation, research, and education efforts on humpback whales in Hawaii.
