Share

This exhibit at Fletcher Library on the ASU West campus is presented by the Cultural Arts Coalition and the Academies at South Mountain.

The Cultural Arts Coalition (CAC) envisions individuals and communities enriched with creative practices, tools and skillsets to expand critical thinking and cultural awareness, thereby supporting a sense of belonging and respect within a larger community.

Since ancient human history, people have had a need to represent their beliefs, values and emotions in physical, artistic forms taking the shape of symbols, language, objects and performance. These metaphors can be more powerful than language as a means of communication. The CAC believes that everyone can use the arts to reflect, express and discover, recording thought, emotion and experience in temporary or permanent means, personally and in community.

Nature@Noon presents 'Drinking Rain: A Rattlesnake Mystery'

Share

Join NatureMaker at the Biomimicry Center for a hands-on presentation by Konrad Rykaczewski and Gordon Schuett

While doing field research in southern Arizona, evolutionary ecologist Gordon Schuett observed that rattlesnakes often formed a flattened coil during rainstorms and began drinking water from their bodies. How did they do it? he wondered.

Supported by a grant from the Biomimicry Center at ASU, Schuett teamed up with ASU engineering faculty Konrad Rykaczewski to take a closer look at the mysteries of snakeskin. What they discovered could help researchers develop materials that capture fog for drinking water in coastal areas. Join Schuett and Rykaczewski as they present the surprising results of their new work and discuss its implications for fog harvesting and other exciting new human applications. 

Nature@Noon is a series of workshops that explores the collection of ASU's new NatureMaker library and its potential to inspire sustainable innovation. NatureMaker is a collaboration between The Biomimicry Center and the ASU Library.
