Dual Projections

Environmental artists Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison were commissioned by the Center for Art + Environment, at the Nevada Museum of Art, to create Sierra Nevada: An Adaptation which proposes a series of long-term ecological responses to temperature increases in the Sierra Nevada. This visualization was created in collaboration with the Desert Research Institute (DRI), in Reno, Nevada, to demonstrate possible outcomes of differing forest management strategies - in this case for Independence Lake.
