About the Artist: Nate Jensen

Nate Jensen is studying environmental science and theater arts at BCC. He will appear next month in BCC’s innovative play: “7 Minutes to Midnight, which reflects on the tension in today’s world arising from the presence of nuclear weapons. He is passionate about both of his fields of study, but before anything else he is an artist.

Still, Nate says he observes and creates much like what happens in science. And as a human being and an American, he believes we all have a responsibility with education and knowledge. “We must project a brighter future for us and for the world. We must use these tools to observe the status and direction of the United States and then attempt to create it.” Reflecting on the nuclear destruction of

Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in 1945, Nate said, “I think it went far beyond science, far beyond politics, and crossed a line that should never be crossed.” Peace is not a word that Nate uses often, but he believes there is no better word. “It is obviously a part that’s missing when we observe today’s world, so people everywhere must create peace, or we will remain static in this universe.”
