Edgar Cardenas is an artist-scientist. He was born in California, raised in Wisconsin, and educated in New England and the Southwest. He studied Psychology at Gordon College (BA), Industrial/Organizational Psychology at University of New Haven (MA), and is a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Sustainability, with one foot in the School of Art at Arizona State University. Edgar’s photographs have been exhibited in galleries as well as in scientific journals. He believes the next creative mashup should be between art and science so he works in both spaces. Specifically, his work explores the ecological, cultural, and technological relationships humans have with land.
