The February 9, 2017 DC Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER) was the DC Regional Forum (Keck Center, Washington DC). Ahn’s topic: The Rain Project is an interdisciplinary, on-campus, student project that Ahn designed as an urban ecosystem restoration model as well as a collaborative pedagogical approach between ecological science and art at George Mason University (GMU). A group of students from several disciplines participated in designing and constructing a floating wetland for a campus storm water pond as part of sustainable storm water management.
