(NASA.com) Charles Lindsay was selected by the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute to serve as an Artist in Residence. His art communicates a fascination with scientific inquiry, space exploration and the limits of human perception. Lindsay’s audiovisual installations create a multi-sensory experience; these other-worldly realms seem somehow familiar, yet completely unknown.
Beginning his career as an exploration geologist and documentary photographer, he recorded his research in the arctic. Capturing the harsh polar climate on film helped to plant the seed for a growing body of work that expresses Lindsay's evolving vision of communication, symbols and space exploration through still images, videos and music.
About the SETI Institute's Artist in Residence Program
The mission of The SETI Institute’s Artist in Residence Program is to encourage cross-disciplinary artistic expression in order to explore and illuminate the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
This program seeks to foster a cross pollination of ideas between artists and scientists, where these disciplines may influence each other through personal interaction and the shared adoption of new technologies. This initiative also aspires to encourage youth to explore the possibilities emerging at the nexus of art, technology and the sciences.
