About the Work


Unseen/forgotten: An ode to the humble landscape | Invisible/olvidado: Oda al paisaje humilde

2024

This project, which will include interactive and performance-based elements, will explore Central New York as a site of “post-industrial natural wonder”, using regionally extinct species in local herbaria as tools to meditate on  “[t]he tension between what prevails and what has shifted or disappeared” in a field of “memory, transformation, and territory”.
