Media Object: Expanding Views: Lia Halloran in Conversation with Maria Popova

7:30 p.m. PT | Thursday, July 14, 2022

Join us for a soaring conversation between writer Maria Popova and interdisciplinary artist Lia Halloran, presented in celebration of Double Horizon, Halloran’s current installation at the Exploratorium. With an eye to this work, they will explore broader questions about creativity and the role of art as a lens on reality—all animated by their shared passion for science.

Maria Popova thinks and writes about science and art, poetry and philosophy, children’s books and our search for meaning—about what it means to live a life of purpose and gladness, wonder-smitten by reality.

Lia Halloran is an artist who often incorporates science and nature to create projects that draw from scientific materials, historical influences, and identities. She has participated in a wide range of interdisciplinary collaborations with scientists and architects including an upcoming book with Nobel Laureate Kip Thorne about the “warped side of the universe.”
