This project began in 2013 as a “climate reporting project” to explore climate issues in the Pacific Northwest. In our first year, as we stood in the Orca Adventure Lodge bunkhouse and looked at the range of stories, faculty leaders realized two connected themes grew from the work: scientific fact and human experience. Our project offered a perspective of how the world is understood, through science and through memory. Thus, the name was born.
Science & Memory has been a labor of love by students and faculty from the beginning. All of the assets – words, images, art – are produced by students and faculty working together. To list credits for each, to name each of the people who worked in Alaska and in Eugene would be a formidable task. Over one hundred students have contributed in some way. But a few should be named here because of their investment and beyond obligation work ethic.
This site was originally designed by then-student Mike Hobzial, a creative technologist and interactive developer, in 2014. From there, developer Sierra Morgan designed the Science & Memory 2.0. The latest version of the site, conceptualized and designed in 2017, is the work of art director Paige De Paepe. Project manager Karly DeWees gathered and managed assets to begin that process.
The visual integrity of the site is also a team effort. Helen Torney designed the logo in 2014 and brought our first book to life. Taylor Richmond and Miró Merrill led the use of watercolor and art as translational, strategic channel. Paige De Paepe designed the site, the Instagram visual flow, and the type family “Cordova” used throughout the site, as well a visual systems approach for the project.
