Workshop: Invisible Fire: Mapping our Atomic Legacy

Eve Andree Laramee

As part of their  ongoing season “Half Life: Patterns of Change,” the Santa Fe Art Institute presents interdisciplinary artist and educator, Eve Andree Laramee to lecture at Tipton Hall on Friday, April 29 at 6pm. Eve will also hold a workshop Saturday and Sunday April 30th & May 1st.

Eve Andree Laramee is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher, and activist working at the confluence of art and science, specializing in the environmental and health impacts of Cold War atomic legacy sites.

At her lecture, Eve will be speaking about her most recent projects dealing with the environmental and health impacts of our atomic legacy, including her 2009 installation, “Halfway to Invisible” about uranium mining in the Grants, NM area; and her current work in progress, “Slouching Towards Yucca Mountain” a Sci-Fi Western dealing with the problem of radioactive waste from the nuclear power industry and nuclear weapons.

The lecture/workshop will also expand upon her collaborations with environmental scientists mapping the waterborne radioactive plume beneath the Fernald uranium foundry site in Ohio; and a water filter project in collaboration with a materials scientist. Workshop participants will visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, and if access is permitted, Kirtland Airforce Base.
