our changing seas I: a coral reef story
This creative outreach project aims to inspire coral reef stewardship and policy change. It is the culmination of a master’s thesis by Courtney Mattison at Brown University’s Center for Environmental Studies. This portfolio accompanies the exhibition of a large-scale ceramic coral reef wall installation, which debuted at the headquarters of the US Department of Commerce and NOAA and is currently on display at the AAAS Gallery in Washington, DC. The design of the piece is informed by interviews Mattison conducted with marine researchers, artists, and other marine environmental professionals.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science - or AAAS - is an international non-profit organization dedicated to serving society through the advancement of science. Publisher of the journal 
Science, AAAS’s activities range from efforts to enhance communication between scientists and the public and ensure that policymakers have access to the best information as they make decisions about science-based issues to programs that aim to strengthen and diversify the science and technology workforce, foster education in science and technology for everyone, and advance international cooperation. The exhibits in their public gallery on the first floor of their headquarters at 12th and H Streets, NW focus on communicating science through visual arts. The AAAS Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 5 pm.
