Past performances

November 15, 2011 ~ "Just, one word..." at NOAA's Gloucester headquarters, 55 Great Republic Way (Blackburn Industrial Park). In this 45-minute multi-media presentation, I present the important environmental issue of marine plastic pollution through photography, video, sound, and archival images, addressing it through the various lenses of marine science, economics, politics, and our consumer culture. Nina Samoiloff, a Rockport artist, will have some of her marine-debris constructed works on display in the lobby.
