Ken Van Rees, Director of the Centre for Northern Agroforestry and Afforestation, University of Saskatchewan, presented the third ARTS-SCI lecture on his exploration of the intersection of who he is as a forest soil scientist and visual artist. In his words, "This merging of different disciplines seems to be more of a collision when the two meet to express themselves in unexpected ways. How do science and art together reveal the hidden personalities in a burnt forest or the history of a soil profile that most people ignore as dirt? Using elements of the natural earth, I try to capture an intimate relationship with the landscape by entering into it as a living canvas playing with charcoal and soil to chronicle their unique stories."
