The second installment in the Contemporary Arts Center's 'Where Do We Go From Here?' speaker series featured renegade scientist-slash-communicator extraordinaire Dr. Andrew Maynard.
The go-to guy for governments and international research institutions alike, Maynard is a scientist with a self-described unhealthy interest in the dark side: "I used to be a bona fide research scientist, but a few years back I entered the alternative reality of science policy and communication. Under the delusion that 'science,' 'policy' and 'communication' are not mutually exclusive, I’ve spent the past few years trying to make sense of what happens when all three come together."
ABOUT ANDREW MAYNARD:
When not writing and talking about science and technology as the author of '2020 Science' (http://2020science.org/about), he directs the University of Michigan's School of Public Health, Risk Science Center (http://www.sph.umich.edu/riskcenter).
ABOUT THE SERIES:
Borrowing from one of this year's exhibition titles ('Where Do We Go From Here?' http://contemporaryartscenter.org/Jumex), we have invited global game-changers of all kinds to the Contemporary Arts Center to answer one question: Where do we go from here? No other rules. Each one is different and each one gets you thinking. Only one thing guaranteed: great conversation. This is what contemporary art can do. This is where the curious come out to play.
