My collaborators, Rachel Stevens and Phoenix Toews, and I will be presenting our new project Oyster City at the Mobility Shifts: International Future of Learning conference at the New School in NYC on October 12th. The workshop description is here. The project we are presenting, Oyster City, is an augmented reality walking tour of lower Manhattan focused on the history of humans and oysters in NY Harbor, including information about recent initiatives to restore water qualities by reintroducing oyster reefs to the harbor.

As part of my University of California Institute of the Arts Grant, I have been working on a project called Fishing: A Playable Possible Future. The piece, now in the R&D phase, will be formed as a playable nonfiction concerned with declining global fish population, a food shortage issue with potential dire consequences for humans and the ecosystem. The work is currently in a research and development phase led by artist Meredith Drum. For more information about the project, please see my research and development blog: fishingplayablepossiblefuture.com
