About

In 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/ Francesca Galeazzi is an architectural engineer working as environmental sustainability specialist. She has been working for Arup Associates since 1999. Francesca is also a practicing artist, working mainly with sculptural installations and site specific interventions. In 2007 she was awarded a Masters in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Cape Farewell arctic expedition member October 2008. Cape Farewell aims to bring together the highest levels of the arts, science, communication and media to disseminate the urgency of the climate change challenge, through an annual 10-days expedition in the fragile and fast changing Arctic environment and through a series of events, world-travelling exhibitions, talks and films that will follow the expedition.
