Connecting with artists around the world
Connecting with artists around the world

If there was a way to connect with other artists working on environmental issues in a non-traditional way, would that be useful to you? I had a great meeting with Theresa von Wuthenau, founder of Imagine2020, an arts organization which is an umbrella for 11 presenters around Europe who are presenting work on climate change […]

A nice interview with me…
A nice interview with me...

An excerpt from the wonderful interview that Wave Hill conducted, edited and published in the Remediate/Re-vision catalog [pdf]: My engagement with the environment has evolved over time. I first started working three-dimensionally after moving to New York City. The urban environment felt like a place where one had to make an effort to engage with nature, and […]

Ripples
Ripples

  I came up with a quick (and I hope fun) project to use in place of presenting my work ay the Creative Capital/Creative Time workshop on Real Community Engagement. I wrote the words “power” “memory” and “change” on three small stones. I gave them to people in the workshop and asked that they use […]

That elusive work/life balance
That elusive work/life balance

I am an artist. I create public and social practice art. I am a mother, I have an amazing toddler with whom I want to spend as much time as possible. I am a wife who treasures her relationship with her husband and strives to stay connected and present. I am a teacher, I share […]

Why my website looks like this
Why my website looks like this

I recently redesigned my website. There’s a lot more information (text) and a mix of projects, proposals and blog posts. So why did I chose to do this? My work is cross-pollinatory (new word?) And so it is important to give somewhat equivalent weight to thoughts, proposals and realized projects. They all bear weight on […]

(Intra)structure
(Intra)structure

(Intra)structure is a a collaboration with Renata Mann, artist and jewelry maker. Her fiber-based work is on a personal scale. My vegetative-based work is on an urban scale. We were interested in bridging those two points. We created (Intra)structure, a vascular and modular growing system for epiphytic and climbing plants. The pieces are connected by […]

Art Remix
Art Remix

So I have another idea for a project. It stemmed from loooking at a project by an artist whose work I really love and thinking about what I would like to do with it… I have a couple of artist projects I want to do that with and it might be fun/freeing to do a […]

Building upon the experimentation in bridging the […]

How Do We Connect

New York City is an interesting place. Eight million people in a relatively small radius of space all crossing paths on sidewalks, roads, trains… Most of us live in buildings with at least 2 other families/residents and some live in buildings with hundreds or even thousands? of other residents. Sometimes we are friends with people […]

Change in Attitude

I am a generous person. I really dont believe in scarcity and i genuinely celebrate the triumphs of other artists. So when during Cop15 a friend sent me a link to a project a lot like HighWaterLine, I responded back “oh wow, that’s so cool! I’m really glad there are other projects like HWL out […]

Participants will donate 4 square feet of apartment floor or inside or outside […]

The View from Within

Taking a moment to post on my now under-utilized and neglected blog. Gone are the days of maintaining 2, 3, or even 4 blogs, these days it difficult enough to write a 140 character tweet or facebook update. And wow, how the landscape has changed over the years. Not just for me personally or professionally, […]
