{CANCELED} Artist Talk: Heather Green


Heather Green's projects and installations examine historical and ecological narratives of the Northern Gulf of California and Sonoran Desert, a place that has been vulnerable to overdevelopment and overfishing. Through a phenomenological investigation of counting, charting, collecting, and displaying what is found in this region, Green invites speculation about what can be known and what will remain unknowable, what can be seen and what may never be seen again. Whether photographing the movements of the tide, interviewing fishermen, conferring with regional scientists, or combing the shoreline—investigative fieldwork inspires and informs her projects. In order to offer the experience of place as a multidimensional, multi-sensory immersion, her installations use a wide range of media and interactive elements, allowing an opportunity for participation that calls for more sustained attention.

Green is a recipient of numerous grants and awards, and her work has been shown across the United States and internationally. A native of Tucson, Green is Assistant Professor of Book Arts at Arizona State University.
