Charles Lindsay is a multi-disciplinary artist working with technology and eco-systems. His FIELD STATION is currently installed at MassMoCA. Lindsay is the SETI Institute’s A.I.R. Program Director, a Guggenheim Fellow, and the innovator behind OSA EARS—a project designed to stream high resolution sound and climate data from one of the Earth’s most bio-diverse rain forests, located on Costa Rica’s OSA peninsula. ECOTONE is the contemporary art environment conceived to immerse viewers in an augmented real time audio visual point cloud, from OSA EARS, so that nature and technology are experienced as dynamic simultaneous networks.
Each year professional artists are invited to give lectures at Pratt and conduct studio visits with our graduate students. The Visiting Artists Lectures are coordinated by two selected graduate students and overseen by faculty advisors. The goal for the lectures and studio visits is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.
Pratt Institute's Department of Fine Arts 2016/2017 Visiting Artists Lecture Series was made possible in part by generous grants from The Robert Lehman Foundation and The Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
