Attached is the google doc with my final paper!
Thanks for a great quarter!!!!
Although it has been more than a month since I attended the Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) on May 2nd, it has most certainly not been far from my mind. I know it has become customary for me to always mention how our class sessions/events have boggled my thinking, but, absolutely nothing compares to this event… more specifically, Bill Fontana’s work.
Global climate change is the observed rise of the Earth’s average temperature and the related consequences resulting from anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.
A visit to the Hammer Museum was a great experience. I personally do not usually make trips to museums on a regular basis but I am very glad I did so this time. I was able to observe a lot of artwork by different people with different perspectives/views and that was very inspiring and interesting.

I rarely go to the Biomedical Research Library, but when I do, I go see what is new and popping Special Collections. Actually, this quarter was the first time I explored the Special Collections in this library, of which I previously had not known its existence. It looked like a normal part of the library, with book stacks. However, there were special encased displays, which presented some interesting artwork. The theme of some of the displays in the special collections seemed to revolve around birds, specifically parrots.
The Making Strange Exhibit was at once stunning, absurd, and thought-provoking! Vivan Sundaram is a Delhi-based artist who does a fantastic job of taking normal, everyday things and turning them into strange combinations that spurs deep thinking about societal notions of beauty and health. Although there were so many pieces that brought up interesting discussion, I'd like to share my thoughts on some of my favorites.
