Imagine Science Films Artist Mara G. Haseltine's Live Performance of "La Bohème: A Portrait of Today’s Oceans in Peril" with Advanced Screening of "Invisible Oceans"

New York, NY, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com )-- Internationally renown environmental Artist Mara G. Haseltine invites the public to a groundbreaking live performance of "La Bohème: A Portrait of Today’s Oceans in Peril" and advance screening of "Invisible Oceans" with artist and director Emily Driscoll.

Taking advantage of the impressive multimedia capabilities of the brand new Made in NY Media Center, Mara will unveil a set of film installations observing scientific, digital, and natural processes. The centerpieces of this evening, will be "La Bohème: A Portrait of Today’s Oceans in Peril" and an advanced screening, "Invisible Oceans" with Director Emily Driscoll at 9pm. Followed by a fun and lively Q&A with the Director and Artist.

La Bohème: Depicts the poor young poet Rodolfo, who falls in love with Mimi, a young grisette who is dying of consumption. In this case, Mimi is the plankton sculpture ensnared in plastic -- a representation of our ailing oceans. The performance intends to highlight the close relationship between humans and the health of the microscopic world, in particular our oceans. The Preview short film of "La Bohème: A Portrait of Today's Oceans" had its world premier at the agnès b. gallerie at 50 Howard St, NY, NY and was co-directed by Imagine Science Film’s Alexis Gambis,. The work will be showcased along with a performance by
Joseph Bartning of the Salzburg Opera.

"Invisible Oceans": Plankton and Plastic, Art of the Microscopic Ocean, A film by Emily V. Driscoll. The film showcases how during a Tara Oceans expedition to study the health of the oceans, the NYC sci-artist Mara Haseltine finds an unsettling presence in samples of plankton she collected. Not only did the samples contain the delicate otherworldly forms of plankton but also shreds of sunlight-degraded plastic. This discovery inspired a series of sculptural depictions of oceanic plankton entwined with plastic, that demonstrate that our fate is intimately linked with that of our oceans. Plankton plays a crucial role in regulating our planet's atmosphere, creating half of the world’s oxygen.

Guests will be invited walk into the beautiful and disturbing microscopic world of a sample droplet of today’s ocean water (set to Puccinni's 1840's Opera) and experience the newly unveiled "Ravenous Ctenophores" - new animations of plankton and invisible pollutants like the chemicals that compose "PCB's" and "Prozac."

This event will be the culmination of Mara G Haseltine’s year long artist residency with Imagine Science Films.
