Remediate/Re-vision: Artists Engaging the Environment
Featuring projects by
Natalie Jeremijenko, Matthew Mazzotta, Eve Mosher, George Trakas
July 15 - August 20, 2010
Cambridge Arts Council in collaboration with Wave Hill:
Remediate/Re-vision is a public exhibition that features four artists working within the realm of "Remediation" - a practice of public art that deals directly with environmental intervention. These four projects are just an example of the innumerable ways artists, architects, and scientists are using physical, social, and conceptual methods to remediate and re-vision our public and private spaces.
Eve Mosher's Seeding the City utilizes social networking to site urban interventions in the form of green roof planters in New York City. George Trakas redesigned public space along New York's largest wastewater facility, creating Newtown Creek Nature Walk. Natalie Jeremijenko's Environmental Health Clinic at NYU invites the public to bring in local environmental concerns and prescribes remedies that can be carried out by each person. Matthew Mazzotta is in the planning stages of a prototype of his Park Spark project in Cambridge, a methane digester that converts dog waste into an "eternal flame" that powers a situation for civic engagement.
