Fernanda Oyarzún interview: Sea Life and See Life

May 9, 2022

Our guest is Dr. Fernanda Oyarzún, a biologist, scientific illustrator and sculptor, who works in the worlds of both science and art - exploring the life, forms and evolution of marine biodiversity.

Fernanda is an Associate Researcher at both UCSC, the Catholic University of Concepcion and at SECOS, the Coastal Social-Ecological Millennium Institute, in Chile. 

She is also an acclaimed artist whose realistic sculptures of marine life have been displayed around the world. In this episode, we discuss the role drawing and observation play in science, how our whole body is involved in processing information, and how we can nourish creativity through experimentation and play.
