Biosphere, the Music Video
"We don't have a thing to fear, we're living in a biosphere -- of life!"
With those words ringing out as the chorus of this MTV-style homage to the Biosphere II experiment, Jefferson High School science teacher T.H. Culhane and his inner-city students challenged both the doom and gloom that had infected the environmental movement and the public education system which separated the sciences and the arts. Circa 1992 this is a gem of the D.E.M.M.O. productions "Melodic-Mnemonics Science Education through Music and Video" collection produced "of the teachers and students, by the teachers and students, for the teachers and students."
D.E.M.M.O. stood for "Digital Education for Multi-Media Occupations", and was a program run by T.H. Culhane and his students in South Central Los Angeles from 1989 until 1997.
