Figure 4. Deceptive Beauty. Spontaneous collaborations emerged among participating artists and writers during unstructured time on field trips and facilitated collaborations with scientists. Artist Ree Nancarrow and writer Debbie Clarke Moderow found they shared a common interest in methane while on the 12-hour bus ride home from Toolik Field Station. The ITOC director connected them with methane researcher Katey Walter Anthony and the three collaborated on the fiber art quilt Deceptive Beauty, which features an image of Katey Walter Anthony collecting methane samples, shows flames that can occur when methane bubbles are lit on fire, and references a passage in Moderow’s essay The Narrow Line: Where Art Meets Science.
