ART WORKS RESIDENCY 2016
As part of the Art Works Residency in 2016 I created a project entitled: Moving Like a River, which collaboratively re-imagines the role of the San Lorenzo River through art and science. I engaged visitors in map-making, water-quality testing, and provided creative river field guides in both English and Spanish for self-guided tours. I collaborated with local topography mapmaker Mathew Jaimeson to create three life-sized maps of the entire San Lorenzo Watershed, as well as River Scientist Alev Bilginsoy with the CWC to render one of the large maps in UV-respondent bacteria, to highlight the naturally occurring, and human-created bacteria found throughout its tributaries. I also worked with the Santa Cruz Sand Quarry to build an interactive Erosion Sculpture highlighting the natural process erosion and the influence of human development on river water turbidity.
