Season 2, Ep.6 : Marina Zurkow and Bob Braine



This episode features media artist Marina Zurkow, who's work explores near-impossible nature-culture intersections, researching “wicked problems” like invasive species and superfund sites.

ABOUT

Marina Zurkow
is a media artist focused on near-impossible nature-culture intersections, researching “wicked problems” like invasive species and superfund sites. She uses biomaterials, animation, and software technologies to foster intimate connections between people and non-human agents, in gallery installations and participatory public projects.

Recent exhibitions include Chronus Art Center, Shanghai; Bitforms Gallery, NY; Sundance New Frontiers; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, and a faculty member at ITP / NYU.

The Floating Studio for Dark Ecologies (FSDE), is made up of Marina Zurkow, Nicholas Hubbard, and  Rebecca Lieberman – is a collective of media artists designing experiences that activate “ways of knowing” which differ from those in informative pamphlets or science-based lectures, in order to facilitate alternative means for citizens to engage with urban waterways.

We seek to foster intimacy and understanding for non-experts, and cultivate community advocacy with a long-term view towards policy and social changes. These could take the form of implementing green infrastructure, and addressing ecological justice, climate change, and human health factors.
