Stuck in her suburban home while watching her small children, Katie Caron found herself questioning her relationship with the natural world. This query prompted her to build an immersive installation exhibit using plastic and styrofoam. Plasticized renditions of the Rocky Mountains will rise up around visitors, while LED lights and projections stain the room with a digital glow, showcasing the integration of nature with technology in our lives. Wed-Thu noon-5 p.m.

In 2005, National Geographic sent photographer James Balog to the Arctic with one instruction—capture climate change.
