Temple Associate Professor of Film and Media Arts Roderick Coover is a featured artist in Sensing Change, a new Chemical Heritage Foundation art exhibit that aims to show the relationship between art and science.

On display at the foundation’s Hach Gallery from July 2013 until May 2014, the installation will feature multi-sensory works of art that present the unseen issues of climate change. Coover’s contributions include Toxi-City, a combinatory film, and Estuary, an artist book and webwork about climate change.

Coover’s other new media works include The Language of Wine: An Ethnography of Work, Wine and the Senses and From Vérité to Virtual: Conversations on the Frontier of Visual Anthropology, and museum installation Inside/Outside at the Museum of the American Philosophical Society. He has previously been awarded a USIA Hays-Fulbright Fellowship, a Whiting Fellowship, a Chicago Group on Modern France Fellowship and an LEF foundation grant.
