This is a guest post from Lisa Blackburn and Mark Boyd, who are art-science residents at AS IF Center through April. (For more info on their residency, see our January 23 post, “Capturing Botanical Noise.”
The return of inclement weather has forced us back into our shops, where we continue to work on machines and devices to use on the site. This brief interruption gives us time to do some testing, refining and troubleshooting of the natural/human interfaces, which will allow for smoother field work. It also provides us the time and space to clarify our goals and develop a logical plan of action. We’re eager to get outside- there are already subtle indications of spring activity at lower elevations.
