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 […]

Seeding the City
Seeding the City

This project utilizes social networking to site urban interventions in the form of green roof modules. It capitalizes on community building to introduce urban environmental issues and remediation tools. The modules and their accompanying flags and street level signage will track the growth of the network throughout the neighborhood. Online resources will include mapping of […]

Collaboratory
Collaboratory

Collaboratory will initiate discussions on public and private spaces and experiment with collective remediation. Collaboratory, will occur as a series of conversations (many of which will be public) between designers, artists, architects, scientists, planners and the general public and me. Collaboratory is the investigative aspect of the Seeding the City project. 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 […]

Four feet for food and NY-Utopia

Another couple of project ideas 🙂 FOUR FEET FOR FOOD It stems from a project idea that i had a while ago that was a more generalized sustainability project, i am thinking now to refine/define the space for some aspect of food production. Participants will donate 4 square feet of apartment floor or inside or […]

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, […]

Trying not to get too personal

As many of you may know (or have inferred) from this blog, that while I am more than happy to openly share insight, thoughts, processes, secrets and trivia about my creative practice, I rarely share information about my personal life. In order to offer a bit of an explanation for my long absence though, I […]

Why my latest project is a FAILURE and why that is AWESOME!

Okay, so you probably know that I have been working on the Seeding the City project for over two years now. And this past September the project launched! YAY! It was a long time in the planning stages. So the point of the project was to find a handful of people who were interested in […]

Floating Island for a New Millenium
Floating Island for a New Millenium

  In 2005, Robert Smithson’s Floating Island made its long planned (it was originally conceived in 1970) journey around Manhattan. A purely artistic act, which was in keeping with Smithson’s oeuvre, Floating Island, was likened to a displaced piece of Central Park – a manufactured landscape removed from public access and in a non-native environment. […]

Paths of Desire
Paths of Desire

In Lower Manhattan there exists a unique intersection of urban infrastructure and paths of desire. Much of our existing infrastructure was determined by paths of desire or by the geography of the island before development. -Broadway was originally a major native American trail which connected settlements with the water, -Maiden Lane a water inlet where […]

Things on my mind

And no, Georgia isn’t currently one of them. Although Savannah is really pretty and the food is good. I’ve been busy trying to get a bunch of the pieces of the Summer & Fall’s projects in place, including: Collecting water bottles & other materials for Paths of Desire. If you have access to water bottles […]

Inter-related
Inter-related

Inter-related from eve mosher on Vimeo. Birds, bees and butterflies rely on the diversity of native plants in New York City. Those plants are also reliant on the birds, bees & butterflies to ensure their pollination and propagation. This installation is made up of representations of native birds, bees & butterflies. Each of the small […]

Collaboratory

As part of a recent application, I included a research project that I want to undertake which I am calling Collaboratory. Here’s a little more about it: Collaboratory will initiate discussions on public and private spaces and experiment with collective remediation. Collaboratory, will occur as a series of conversations (many of which will be public) […]
