Eco-Resilience  using the virtual to transmit and preserve environmental knowledge

The name Eco-Resilience came to me as a way to describe, in a broader sense, my artistic and scholarly research over the past seven years exploring water from an Arts and Science viewpoint with a trans-disciplinary team. 

From using game technology in “being” first person water and flowing through the entire NYC watershed, to exploring the importance and complexity of plankton in freshwater ecosystems in vr, ar and virtual touch pools in the "World of Plankton", "The Aquatic Messenger", and "Algae Bloom Dynamics", my work is created in dialog with art and science to build critical awareness about the physical world around us. I see the use of the virtual as a radical act of preservation and transmission of environmental knowledge. Please visit and learn more about the Eco-Resilience team and our work!

       The Aquatic Messenger

 Resonating with the spirit of Galileo’s Starry Messenger (Sidereus Nuncius), The Aquatic Messenger is a virtual reality artwork about the importance of plankton for freshwater ecology. One can viscerally travel through deep time and the corresponding aquatic life in the lake region. Created in conjunction with the micro paleontology and freshwater plankton research being done on the Jefferson Project at the Darrin Fresh Water Institute (DFWI) at Lake George.

World of Plankton

The World of Plankton is an interactive virtual 3 dimensional game-art and science environment designed to viscerally engage the participant at the micro-scale of unseen phytoplankton and zooplankton in order to gain first-hand experience about the drama of underwater life and its potentials for environmental impact.

Flo: The Watershed Project

"Flo" continues my artistic research in using simulation technology to explore first person experience, intentionality, and empathy. "Flo" offers a rare opportunity to create a unique bridge between the digital and natural worlds. Here one experiences what it may be like to "be" water.  Not only an artwork, this project has educational components in the form of mini-games that address water pollution, sustainability, and ecofriendly practices.
