Artist’s Statement:

In exploring the Anthropocene proposition, I work to understand how humans, non-humans, creatures and landscapes, relate and negotiate being dynamic parts in a planetary whole.  have written on multispecies and non-human/non-human relations (for example, with parasites, insects, bees, and parasites) and more broadly.  As part of Deep Time Chicago we sponsor booklets and issues of sustainability and imagination a lead public walks to areas of environmental history, transition, and concern. I also engage these issues in my teaching, including the course Anthropocene: The Future is N ow – a hybrid science and studio arts course at SAIC.
