I was invited by MEAD – Maine Environmental Artists and Designers to come up to visit and share with te group. I was interested in creating an interactive experience and learning model that would result in some tangible outcomes for the group. I proposed a one day workshop that led with storytelling and transformed into […]

Writing a perfect artist’s statement
Writing a perfect artist's statement

Okay, so I doubt that it will be perfect, but every step is a step closer right? I am working on yet another grant application and am using excerpts from recent applications to try to rewrite a CLEAR and CONCISE statement. The statement will be followed by more specific descriptions in regards to the images […]

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 […]

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 […]

(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 […]

Fashioning Self and the Environment, Textile Arts Center

I will be participating with Seeding the City and a new collaborative project with Renata Mann, (Intra)Structure. Textile Arts Center and environmental fiber artist, Abigail Doan, are hosting an evening open house for Earth Day 2011! This will be an opportunity to explore ideas related to fashioning self and our shared environment. Invited artists and local […]

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 […]

Trying not to get too personal
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!
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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Invisible lines – invisible lives

I was recently invited to speak about my work as part of a Pratt colloquium whose theme is the urban landscape. I asked the organizer if perhaps I could design an interactive project for the students to participate in and then spend the time discussing that project instead of me coming in to lecture (yes […]

Interventionist Public Art — A Curriculum

The other morning I tweeted about having some ideas on designing curriculum around social interventionist art. A few things got me thinking about this, 1) conversations i have had with similar artists about the somewhat unique set of skills needed to create s.i.a, 2) a friend who just got a job designing new curriculum on […]

How I am like the MoMA, or the launch of the Fine Art Foster Program

Okay, so I’m not really much like the MoMA, or even like a NaNO–MoMA (but I do like InterCaPs). When I was in grad school, I read somewhere about the enormous number of artworks that the MoMA owns that literally never get put on display. (Insert here myths about a vast underground labyrinth of treasures). […]

Power to the people – calling for an artists’ union

So you’ve heard me call for it before (and mentioned here and here) – a union of artists. To ensure fair pay and fair practices. So that we quit underselling ourselves. So that institutions realize the full value of the work that an artist puts into creating the finished piece (whatever form that might take). […]

a reason to love social networking

last night, i was working on my presentation for the talk that I am getting ready to give at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. The talk is using HighWaterLine as a jumping off point for discussing the role that artists and designers can play in the larger scheme of environmental policy and planning. […]

But is it art?

I am currently working on a proposal for a project which invites communities to build floating islands and moor them off coastal city parks. The project was inspired in part by Smithson’s Floating Island and in part by the need/desire to create a water remediation project for the city – we are after all 3 […]

re-thinking your landscape

I had a really interesting conversation with a professor from Pratt‘s Visual Criticism studies program. We were discussing my participation in this semester’s colloquium, which would focus on Landscape*. He felt I would be a good participant because my work so often was focused on making the invisible visible in landscapes (I am paraphrasing greatly). […]

Things I love, Things I think about

I basically spent today talking. Which makes me wonder why I would want to continue to do so, although this is in the written form. I wanted to continue because I am pretty excited about what I was doing today and wanted to note some things down before I forget about them… First, I spent […]

It’s about passion, and love.

I have a question for you- Do you love what you are doing? I mean really really enjoy (practically) every minute of it? Do you, at the end of each day think, I did good, and I love what I did today? If you don’t why not? Or more importantly, why are you not doing […]

Yup I did it again – DIY Public Art

A couple of friends of mine were encouraging me to write down all the stuff I learned while doing my public art project (heck they taught me half of it) and to get it out there. Sure, I could have written the posts on this blog and categorized them, but, well, I thought it needed […]
