Sculptural Interventions to Biodiversity Decline

 
I will install sculptural artworks along a habitat corridor; Corredor de las Plantas being built as part of a program run by the city of Boulder to support pollinators and other wildlife to reverse biodiversity decline. The sculptures will draw people and demonstrate the importance of connection – the connection of community members to create the biodiversity corridor, the connection of plants, insects, birds and other life within each patch of habitat, as well as the connection between pollinator garden patches to create the corridor. Individual artworks will also reflect the cultural history of each site. The sculptures will include areas filled with soil to engage interest and encourage participation where community members will be able to create their own small pollinator gardens within the sculpture and will be encouraged to incorporate habitat and corridors into their own neighborhoods. Through daily encounters with these interruptions, biodiversity initiatives will be made visible and meaningful.
