Rebecca Rutstein to Set Sail onboard Robert Ballard’s Exploration Vessel Nautilus

On July 6th, Rebecca Rutstein will be participating as an “Artist at Sea” Science Communication Fellow onboard Robert Ballard’s Exploration Vessel Nautilus through July 26th, 2015. Departing from the Galapagos Islands, she will work alongside scientists who will conduct hi-resolution multi-beam mapping of the ocean floor through the East Pacific. The team will then focus on the California Borderlands where more detailed mapping will take place in this tectonically complex region. Rutstein will be using the live feed of data to create paintings onboard the ship, and communicate through live interactions with audiences globally about the expedition.
