More about “Art & Science – translating marine science into playful and accessible public art” Rebecca’s 40 years of woodcarving, most of those within a few feet of the high tide in SE Alaska, have given her an intimate and artistic understanding of the marine environment. Her art work now focuses on the elegant sculptural forms and fascinating science of plankton. She is interested in sharing with the public some of the wild and beautiful microscopic life that is often unseen, but vital to ocean health. She hopes to combine intriguing marine science with powerful and tactile visual art to demonstrate the importance of both. A plankton board game, collectible plankton action figures and public art are some of her current projects.
