SETI AIR Newsletter - December 2022

SETI AIR Newsletter




Bettina Forget

The SETI AIR program had a great year. Our artists have presented exhibitions and performances around the globe, launched art books and music albums, garnered impressive reviews in the media, and gave fascinating public lectures and presentations. They are at the vanguard of conversations around climate change, the Anthropocene, A.I., NFTs, and - of course - Life beyond Earth. It continues to be a delight to work with such amazing talents, and I look forward to another year of ground-breaking art projects.

You can bring the SETI AIR experience home with you. Check out the Collect SETI AIR list below if you’re looking for holiday gifts for your loved ones (or yourself!).

Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a fantastic start to the New Year,
