AboutIn this talk Francesca will talk about environmental sustainability - what we can do to help - plus her recent experiences, from both artist and engineer points of view, as part of a Cape Farewell expedition to the Arctic where she created two art works: a controversial performance about polluting; and a more poetic legacy work that can be followed online. http://www.capefarewell.com/diskobay/carbon-emissions/
