Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
In January 2015 I was awarded the Teton ArtLab Artist Residency in Jackson, Wyoming. I used the month-long residency to investigate ecological and cultural forces at play within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The research-driven artwork promotes ecological awareness by highlighting environmental management, cultural attitudes, and land-use practices found throughout the iconic ecosystem.
The year-long project culminated with a multi-disciplinary immersive installation featuring silkscreen prints, mixed media drawings, maps and installations in and outside the galleries at Daly Projects in Jackson, Wyoming. In conjunction with month-long exhibition at Day Projects, I realized several temporary installations throughout Teton County.
The Greater Yellowstone exhibition consisted of four creative components: unsolicited proposals, GYE maps, silkscreen prints and temporary art installations.

Greater Yellowstone Maps focused on the intersection of the cultural landscape and ecological conditions making up the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Mapping included both NTS maps and cartography-based spatial data derived by ESRI.
