Lindsay Olson, Artist
Tickets: Free but registration is required.
Lindsay updates on her upcoming art exhibit in Fermilab Gallery - an exploration of the art and science of ocean acoustics. This project makes visible the invisible world of sound in the sea. She created densely embroidered silk panels that help describe what researchers are discovering. The artwork illustrates the largest daily migration of zooplankton, the sound enhancing SOFAR channel, phytoplankton and the dramatic vocalizations of marine life gathered by hydrophones.
