Insert ____ Here 2011 was a re-imagining of the project I created in 2008. This time I collaborated with 350.org to make it huge! And global. We wanted to put the power of creative thinking in the hands of community organizations and give people a chance to think positively in the face of climate change. […]
(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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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). […]
Today though I thought I might further discuss the conundrum of desiring a global art practice (and a global experience) while practicing a small footprint on this earth. As you may recall I was invited to participate in a project in the netherlands and ,my answer to that was to create a project that could […]
I have encountered (in the course of 24 hours) two write ups on the small value placed on human life. First from Transportation Alternatives magazine, Reclaim the Streets: Under the current transportation paradigm in New York, human life and health is traded for mobility, economics and other factors… More than 250 New Yorkers are killed […]
It may be a hoax, but the New York Times paper and website being distributed and posted today has some shockingly simple and beautiful ideas. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the paper has this to say, on George Bush’s indictment for treason: “The death and economic collapse that resulted has been completely devastating to […]

Here’s the first: Climate Change – That’s kind of like calling Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, “alterations in the weather pattern.” What we are facing, is […]
This installation is a visualization of climate change induced migration. Each thread represents one million refugees. Africa: South – 13,000,000 West – 36,000,000 East – 33,00,000 North – 13,000,000 These numbers are for weather related displacement only. Greater migrations will be forced in the area due to water and food shortages. Installation was at Freebird Books […]
A global project which invites community members to post signs recommending things like “insert a green roof here” “insert solar panels here” “inserta park here” “insert porous pavement here” – this project is capitalizing on community awareness of place/environment and optimism in the face of climate challenges. After the participant has added the sign (each with a unique […]
