Oxford Sinfonia appear in this video from the Venice Biennale following our concert conducted by Cayenna Ponchione in January 2015 on the theme of ‘Water’. Listen to us at 3’59”.Art, Science & the Thirsty World was an interdisciplinary conference project between the University of Oxford and Cornell University organized by Oxford graduate students Cayenna Ponchione (Music), Jessica Thorn (Biodiversity) and Benedict Morrison (Film) in collaboration with Cornell Professor Gail Holst-Warhaft (Comparative Literature and Biological and Environmental Engineering, Director of the Cornell Institute for European Studies Mediterranean Initiative). The conference cast together academics in the arts and the sciences to pursue a critical exploration of interdisciplinary practice through collaborative presentations and performances. It facilitated dialogue between researchers and practitioners in the arts, sciences and engineering and sought to foster creative, innovative and trans-disciplinary discussions about water scarcity solutions.
