Alex Turner

Institute of the Environment Fellow
School of Art

Alex Turner is an MFA candidate in studio art with an emphasis in photography. His work explores our attempts to understand human impact in the environment through various lenses of scientific inquiry. His current project examines fluctuations in wildlife migration across the U.S./Mexico border and the effects of various economic and political agendas in the region.  Working with biologists at the University of Arizona, he is employing multiple technologies that create expanded views of the landscape and visualize patterns of movement not detectible to the casual observer. As a Carson Scholar, he hopes to offer new perspectives on research into wildlife habits in a region subject to rapid change and present his findings to a wider audience.
