In this episode, Adam chats with Jefferson Goolsby. A Pacific Northwest intermedia artist and faculty in the Media Arts program at Lane Community College. His creative work integrates video (multi-channel, screen-based, expanded cinema, and live cinema); interactive systems; sound design; installation; performance; and image making. Jeff often works with his award winning music composer wife, Dr. Mei-Ling Lee.
Find out about the children stories they are working on. One is called, “The Ocean Thief.” A beautiful tale about the ocean taking stories. Somewhat performance art and hopefully coming to a book store near you. You may also get some insight on what it’s like to work with your partner. Good and bad.
In our latest episode JoJo and Ian Appow sit down to talk trees, wildfire prevention and the wonder of living in Oregon!
Ian Appow is the coordinator for the Wildland Urban Interface Fuels Reduction Project. The mission of the project is to maximize the social, economic and environmental benefits of Eugene’s urban forest. It’s a collaborative effort to minimize its costs and liabilities by means of adaptive management and community engagement.
Ian shares his experience working with the pilot program and how important fire mitigation is in the time of climate change, deforestation and the buildup of fuel that feeds fires. With consistently drier summers and our urban growth boundary ever changing due to population growth we find ourselves facing new challenges when it comes to controlling wildfires.
