Biosphere 2 Opens Its Doors, Beaches and Lungs to Artists

Poets and writers had the opportunity to spend two days working and writing inside Biosphere 2 during the Poetic Field Research Performance Weekend. The artists had access to locations within the massive structure such as the desert biome, the "lung," the human habitat, the beach and the Landscape Evolution Observatory, B2’s flagship experiment for understanding how Earth’s landscapes respond to climate change. The project is supported by the UA Green Fund, the Biosphere 2 Institute, the Institute of the Environment, the School of Geography and Development, and the UA Poetry Center.
