Beyond the Deep Ecology of the Ocean:
An art-science integration method

I am developing an approach to engage different ways of seeing and thinking, to view our natural science research in its wider context, and a curriculum to teach/co-create this integrated approach with others who are interested in bringing art and narrative storytelling to their research.
