Another Final Frontier

This past summer, I had the opportunity to work with Shona Kitchen and Aly Ogasian on their project, Another Final Frontier, which explores the relationship between NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the natural landscape it sits within, managed by Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

In Shona’s words: “We ironically and poetically argue that Grey Island, a man-made spoil island within the boundaries of both Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Kennedy Space Center, offers a viable alternative for future human habitation. The project critiques the development of commercial spaceflight missions intended to establish permanent settlements on Mars through the use of terraforming. If we consider Kennedy Space Center as our final point of departure, then Grey Island is a return, a re-encountering of a world that is both familiar, yet strange and magical.”

My photographs of their project at Grey Island are currently being exhibited at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, through February 22nd, 2020.

I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore

This summer, I curated a show of graduate student work at RISD. Come see it at Sol Koffler Gallery, September 4th - September 29th. There will be an opening the evening of Wednesday, September 4th, 7-9pm. More details at the link below.

I Don’t Feel at Home in the World Anymore addresses collective anxiety in a moment fraught with increasing instability, when our very future as a planet looms uncertain and when our lives are valued in proportion to their productivity. The seventeen artists in this exhibit explore how this anxiety inhabits our personal life and the ways in which we respond to it, even as it threatens our own selfhood – what Jia Tolentino calls “capitalism’s last natural resource.”
