Can a plant chew gum
and ride a bicycle simultaneously?

A luminous three-dimensional painting representing a
riparian refuge amidst development and climate change (displayed off-stage).

Refugia is a painterly data visualization done in collaboration with scientists working to identify areas (known as climate refugia) plants and animals can retreat to as California heats up.
The area outside the Venn diagram depicts stressors such as development, drought, rising temperatures, and wildfire.
Inside the circles, I have depicted habitats offering ever-increasing resources for resilience
culminating in the glowing “super-refugia” depicting a riparian oak woodland in the very center.
