Mara Haseltine Open Studio and Live Performance of "La Bohème"
During a Tara Oceans expedition to study the health of the oceans, NYC sci-artist Mara Haseltine finds an unsettling presence in samples of plankton she collected. The discovery inspires her to create a sculpture revealing an ongoing invisible battle beneath the water's surface, showing that the microscopic Ocean world affects all life on Earth.
The evening will close with a short preview film of  environmental artist Mara Haseltine's sculptural performance piece "La Bohème: A Portrait of Today's Oceans", which had its world premier at the agnès b. gallerie last March.

Depicting the poor young poet Rodolfo, who falls in love with Mimi, a young grisette who is dying of consumption. In this case, Mimi is the plankton sculpture ensnared in plastic  a representation of our ailing oceans. The performance intends to highlight the close relationship between humans and the health of the microscopic world, in particular our oceans.

Following Film Lab, Mara G. Haseltine invites guests to her open studio for a live performance of "La Bohème" at her DUMBO studio at 10:15.

Mara G. Haseltine is an internationally renowned artist known for her sculptural renditions of microscopic life forms. She was an early pioneer in the translation of bioinformatics into threedimensional forms. She is an ardent environmentalist and co-founder of The Green Salon, aninternational think tank devoted to environmental solutions. For further information, visit her website at
