Published Projects & Research

Major Projects (exhibited during the last five years)

Treetones TourA temporary site-specific installation where hand-sewn fabric flags are sewn and tied to specific trees in park-like locations. The flags, made from bark rubbings from the trees, utilize tiny bells that blow in the wind to add acoustic awareness. Through a self-directed walking tour, visitors will be guided by the subtle sounds produced by the “singing trees” along with a map to help locate, identify and learn about the trees. This project was exhibited on Governors Island May and June 2016, reaching thousands of visitors throughout the exhibition. Research into other possible locations for this installation is in progress. | FILE

 InsideOut HouseInsideOUT House is a binaural audio installation that simulates the experience of solitude within a natural soundscape using reclaimed materials. This portable, near-soundproof chamber in the form of a rustic outhouse aims to mimic the restorative binaural experience of being outside in nature by isolating and enhancing the aural sense, while minimizing the visual. It was included in exhibitions in Hudson, NY and at the BRIC Biennial Sept-Dec 2014 and featured in reviews of the exhibition. | FILE

Seeding the CityA participatory, site-specific project exhibited at Pulse Miami during Art Basel featured furniture farms and a collaborative drawing to support Verde Gardens in Florida. It was reviewed as part of this high profile, high-traffic event (thousands of visitors per day). This project was also exhibited at Franklin Works in Stamford CT. | FILE

Birds of BrooklynA grant-funded, community-based, public audio installation and website highlighting Brooklyn’s endangered and bygone birds. The project was reviewed in several media outlets, including a feature on ABC News. This project is on-going at several Brooklyn locations, including Metropolitan Exchange Building, Willowtown Gardens, and Monti Building. | FILE

8 Extraordinary GreensA participatory project exhibited at Mixed Greens in New York City, which explored through interactions with gallery visitors the value placed on food and artistic social practice. This exhibition was reviewed in dozens of media outlets with exposure in the thousands. This project continues via community workshops/classes on “household agriculture” and will be featured in an upcoming November 2016 exhibition at Building 92 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. | FILE

Plastic Albatross: A community eco-media project to educate Brooklynites about toxic chemicals in everyday products and encourage sustainable, plastic-free living. Project included a reference website, workshops, and community outreach. | FILE

Works in Progress

 OvertonesA public audio installation that aims to create aural connections to natural environments through the harmonic tones generated by wind harps discreetly installed in trees, abandoned buildings and on bikes. This project was featured at LMCC Open Studios on the Governors Island in May and June 2016. Another iteration is in progress using a PSCCUNY Grant to create and install aeol instruments in exhibition and public spaces. See 19.3 and 19.4 below. FILE

The Sunroom Project Space is a venue for New York-area emerging artists to develop a new body of work or site-specific project as a solo exhibition in one of the two sunrooms (the Sunroom and the Sun Porch) in Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery.
