In 2006, I co-founded The Canary Project with Edward Morris, my husband, collaborator and fellow Loeb. The Canary Project produces art and media that deepen public understanding of climate change (www.canaryproject.org). We have supported or produced more than a dozen works involving more than 30 artists, scientists, writers, designers and educators. Our work has been exhibited in art museums, galleries, science museums, public advertising, school presentations, city halls, the Internet, magazines, etc. I am a fine arts photographer and for the project shot and co-edited a large body of work titled A History of the Future — landscapes of 14 locations throughout the world where scientists are studying the impacts of climate change, as well as places where people are shaping the land in an effort to mitigate or adapt. The photography is exhibited in diverse venues and frequently combined with other elements, such as archival objects and images, research, video and/or mixed media installation. In addition to producing art and media, we are increasingly involved in education initiatives around the issue of climate change for a variety of age groups. This coming academic year (2010–11), we will be teaching in the Transmedia Department at Syracuse University. The Fellowship gave me the time to step back from the work that we had been racing to make and get into public view, to reassess and fine tune its efficacy. We had long been troubled with what seemed like an impasse between the impulses of art and activism. The Fellowship provided to time to study, read, think and talk about these issues in order to make critical adjustments to our approach. Just over a year has passed since the Fellowship and I feel like it was deeply valuable to the quality of our work and the viability of the project.
