The Artist at Sea Residency provides the opportunity for a visual artist, writer or musician to spend 14 days on an oceanic research vessel interacting with a scientific team gathering data on the size structure and composition of zooplankton in marine food webs off of the Oregon and Washington coasts. Oregon State University received grant funding from the National Science Foundation to complete 4 oceanic research trips in 2022-2023.

Click here to view the research project abstract. A visual artist, writer or musician will be invited to participate in each cruise, journal about their experience, and be inspired to create a product that gives a unique voice to the research team’s findings and processes. The goal of this collaboration is to enhance both the scientific process and broaden cultural understanding of science and this specific project.

It is not necessary that the artist’s current work directly relates to plankton or their biology, but it is essential that the artist chosen is exploring environmental themes that highlight ocean ecology and the importance of understanding the benefits and health of this ecosystem.
