Podcast Ep 15. The Art of Beehives, Foam, & Bubbles: An Interview with Peter Krsko

Artist Peter Krsko uses his background in physics and materials science to study and communicate about nature. He is described as a “bioinspired artist whose approach combines science and art, participatory, interactive and community arts, and play with hands-on education.” On this episode of the podcast, we interview Dr. Krsko about art, science, community building, and spending this semester as Artist in Residence at the UW-Madison Arts Institute’s Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program.
