Peter TerezakisAssociate Arts Professorat New York University
Peter Terezakis began creating jewelry-sized electronic works of art in 1974. His ideas then grew to gallery-sized works, to an interactive building, and eventually to monumental scale temporary installations of a kinetic light sculpture in deserts, forests, and national parks. In 2007 he developed Sacred Sky Sacred Earth, a theatrical event combining art, dance, education, and music to focus on precious – and vanishing – open spaces.
Beginning in the fall of 2014, Peter began teaching classes on environment and health at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He has also taught a class in Cell Phone Cinema and the recurring principles of Art and Technology. After being embedded with an NSF-NYU sponsored expedition to Greenland’s Helheim Glacier in 2019, Terezakis developed a class for students to understand and prepare for the impact Abrupt Climate Change will have on their lives and humanity.
