The Balance-Unbalance (BunB) project aims to use art as a catalyst to explore intersections between nature, science, technology and society with the intent of engendering a deeper awareness and creating lasting intellectual working partnerships in solving our global environmental crisis.

The 4th Balance-Unbalance International Conference took place 21–29 March 2015 and was hosted by Arizona State University, in the United States, and the 5th Balance-Unbalance International Conference took place 9–11 May 2016 and was hosted by the University of Caldas in Manizales, Colombia.
