BITS – Sarah Hearn’s Paper Lichens

In ALL, BITS by Alex Pedersen

Sarah Hearn is a self described visual artist and citizen scientist. Her work In-Between is a composite of several lichen inspired series, including Urban Colonization and Symbiotic Cooperation. Hearn explains:

“Lichens are unusual composite organisms that exist only through the symbiotic partnership between fungi and alga or cyanobacteria. Taking my cue from this collaborative gestalt, these projects require public participation on multiple levels to grow and thrive.”

Below are just a few of our favourite water colour and cut photographs.

Alex is a critical scholar and social scientist. During her degrees, Alex recognized a dearth of knowledge transfer between the academy and the general public. To address this gap, she extends her empirical research through multiple mediums including: publications, formal lectures, public speaking events, radio, theatre and photography. In diversifying access to her research, Alex honed a unique set of skills to plan, design and produce events for a wide variety of audiences. To date, she was responsible for several successful lecture series, community events and fundraisers across diverse settings. Most notably, Alex organized and implemented the 2015 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and was an advisor for the “Free Queen’s” Steering Committee (an initiative encouraging graduates to bring their work to the wider public). In addition, she has written numerous successful grant applications. An activist at heart, Alex advocates for critical thinking in and beyond academic institutions.
