"Portrait of an Arctic Renaissance Man"

Article by Erica Dingman.

Marco Tedesco envisions a scientific narrative that far surpasses the confines of conferences and the annals of academic journals. As a scientist who studies the Greenland ice sheet, his annual trek to the region informs his research and teaching at City College of New York (CCNY). Yet, Tedesco’s wanderlust extends beyond academia, embracing a passion for the arts. His intellectual curiosity and desire to communicate with a wider audience inspired the interdisciplinary endeavor called Polar Seeds, drawing on the melting of the Greenland ice sheet to create a multisensory website and exhibit through visualization and sonification. Sonifications are best heard, but by way of explanation it is the use of non-verbal audio graphing as a means of conveying information.
