Project Status Legend
*** In Progress
I asked a number of people in diverse fields of practice to recommend a book they felt added a new dimension to current environmental discourse. Passages from these books, and others, have been edited, and collaged together to form a text made of many–an open territory of colliding contexts, belief systems, and points of view.
A wifi enabled roller curtain for the gallery window that uses tidal data from the nearby NOAA research station to dictate the level the curtain is drawn. When the tide is high, the shade is drawn to the top, when the tide is low, it extends all the way to the bottom of the sill, and moves incrementally in between.
A three month long endeavor concerning what a mountain can mean to a community, how a rock quarry can improve the ecology of a landscape, and how members of a town can come together to celebrate responsible land use. In collaboration with Ian Holback - a prolific miner and land reclamationist in Dutchess county, NY, and Janet and Davis Reagon - land use activists and educators in Wassaic, NY.
WAVY BEING, SOFT ENTANGLEMENT

An accumulative visual essay in a very porous container, consisting primarily of images, text, and research. At the center of the endeavor are circumstances of entanglement - thinking through and with visualizations of ecological encounters where the already precarious boundaries between beings, are tactfully ignored.
PLEASE STEP INTO MY VIEWSHED
Single channel video installation. Imagery generated using viewshed rendering software. The region depicted is the Harlem Valley - the sight of an active hard rock quarry and land reclamation project. An image of a face with an indifferent expression, found in the stone at the quarry, is superimposed on top of the regions topography, and its surface is virtually explored.
