Exhibition

Exhibition of works that speak to environmental justice, resiliency, water management, toxicity and other related green infrastructure topics. 

Undercurrent

  Curated by Babbie Dunnington and Sarah Dorner,  Undercurrents is an exhibition of community art and landscape architecture student projects, whose work speaks to environmental justice, resiliency, water management, toxicity and other related green infrastructure topics. Works include videos, screen printed posters, sculpture, models, booklets and presentation boards.   Including Work by: Colby Cannon Welsh, Craig Shaw, Diedre Brown, Essye Klempner, Jon Duff, Marie Lorenz, Tammy Wofsey, Thompson Harris, Blake Enos, Hong Gao, Robynne Heymans, Patchariya Kate Jirasiritham, Babbie Dunnington, Jacqui LeBoutillier, Kari Spiegelhalter, Tess Ruswick, and Patricia Noto   Image Credit: Tammy Wofsey House Under Water

Tech Fair

Exhibition of student designed and executed technologies, which seek to support iterative and collaborative coastal resiliency design and planning processes, featuring:

  • AR Landscape experience - Built by CCNY student + faculty
  • Collaborative coastal resiliency mapping centered around a light table 

Cooperative Mapping

  Developed by Robynne Heymans and Hana Georg, and built by Joe Schleg , this is a hands-on, interactive session centered around a traditional, low-tech design tool- the light table. A base map, GIS-developed featuring flooding, storm-surge, social and economic vulnerability layers, will be at the center of the table and participates will be given the opportunity to imagine design solutions on transparency paper to stack and layer. The result is a multidisciplinary, cooperative effort to redefine resiliency to consistently include environmental justice communities. We imagine this as a rolling session- available in one area throughout the conference so participants can contribute and they’re inspired by the other sessions. We hope to continue to use this tool as a means for interdisciplinary planning efforts. The strength of this tool is in its user's varied expertise and judgement. Participants will have the unique opportunity to work side by side with professionals from varied fields to find meaningful solutions and provoke insightful discussions around uplifting environmental justice communities in our coastal resiliency planning efforts. This exercise will also be featured at the 2018 Waterfront Alliance Conference.
