Pandora’s Snatch as part of #MakeUsVisible produced by XR Ensemble in NYC for Women’s History Month 2022

March 17, 2022

Pandora’s Snatch is an augmented reality sculpture made for the #MakeUsVisible project for Women’s History Month in New York City as one of 31 virtual monuments of gender diverse figures juxtaposed against physical statues of men across the city. Pandora’s Snatch is meant to be opened by the Prometheus statue in Rockefeller center. Artist Meredith Drum recounts the myth that links the two artworks: “When Prometheus gave fire to men on earth, Zeus was pissed! In an act of vengeance, he created the first woman, and sent her with a jar full of trouble. But his misogyny backfired as Pandora-earth-goddess brought the cycles of life and death and the promise of a beginning wherever there is an end. Hats off to the great Mary Beth Edelson and Nancy Spero for inspiration.” Click this link with your phone and the AR Sculpture will load through Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ar/701400011240271/

Underwater NY Governors Island Un-Earthed

May 20, 2020

Excited to be a part of Governors Island Un-Earthed, Underwater New York’s Issue Number 16. My contribution People of the Desert 122°F meditates on the past and future of the miles of canals that thread through Phoenix and Tucson, AZ. The largest pre-Columbian irrigation system in North America, the canals were first engineered 2000 years ago by the ancestral Sonoran Desert people. This Native history was destroyed by the construction of the settler-colonial metropolis. Now an urban space of asphalt and concrete, this valley is ill-prepared for the heat of the near future. The summer now reaches 122°F. At 130°, what happens to the city’s vulnerable people, plants, and animals? Adaptation or abandonment?
