I’ll be presenting a new project at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education as part of the upcoming exhibition “Facts and Fables: Stories of the Natural World,” which opens this Saturday, June 25, 4 – 7pm. The show includes some great work by a number of other artists, including my friends and colleagues, Jeanne Jaffe and Brian Collier.
The project, entitled “Nature Study, An Ambivalent Guide,” catalogs a contemplation of the ambivalence that defines humankind’s complex relationship to the natural environment. It consists of a printed guidebook that contains texts, field notes, sketches, photographs, interviews, and secondary research material. Accompanying the guidebook are several physical markers placed along the trail which establish an itinerant narrative through the range of perspectives presented in the guidebook.
