I am fascinated by the overlaps between art and science, which feel particularly salient within geoscience. This project, “dialogue: the earth talking,” grew out of my deep fascination with the intersections of art and geology, and the marks that humans generally, and I specifically, make on land.

As scientists, we all have a story to tell. Making that story interesting and engaging, however, can be a challenge. As a science communicator, it’s my job to make the mundane exciting and the complex understandable.

I honestly don’t know what sparked the idea but one day I was playing guitar and thought, “I want to write songs about something interesting…I’m a scientist…so how about writing songs about scientists?” And that’s how Darwin & Curie was born – my “stage name”.

Drawing was never my thing. All through high school, I took ceramics (and a couple metals) classes, and in college I added film photography to my suite of hobbies, but for me drawing was mostly just doodling.

…today we’re introducing the #AGURocks and #DrawnToGeoScience campaigns. We want to hear your songs and see your drawings. And we want to learn about the inspiration and processes behind them. We’re hoping to not only showcase your works but also provide some inspiration for aspiring artists and musicians out there.

I began to write this blog to share the ways that our Voice of the Sea TV series has covered coastal and ocean science topics…And then the virus SARS-COV-2 put a stop to much of work life as we know it.

As coastal communities worldwide contend with sea level rise, coastal erosion, and other impacts of climate change, a critical piece of the puzzle has become educating stakeholders in highly creative, insightful and practical ways that inspire equitable action.

In 2018, AGU launched Voices for Science, a program that centers around training scientists to address the critical need for communicating the value and impact of Earth and space science to key decision makers, journalists, and public audiences. The program recruits scientists to participate in one of two tracks: policy or communications.

What do you get when a scientist and a sound designer, both passionate about storytelling, communication, and the human experience, collaborate on a project together?

Are you struggling, as a geoscientist, with what you can do to be useful during the Corona Crisis? Here is something that might help: If you are a geoscientist, you are also a scientist and probably a science communicator, and you can use both of those facts to help those around you find, understand, and share the latest information about the virus. Probably the best thing we can do as geoscientists is leverage our skills and training to share and amplify the important messages from the public health community.
