iLand

Saturday, Mar 27, 2010

The city is no longer a concrete wasteland; thinkers and organizations are beginning to discover wilderness in vacant lots and between sidewalk cracks. iLand is a movement-based nonprofit at the forefront of finding new approaches to the urban landscape. The symposium features iLand founder Jennifer Monson’s recent work on aquifers; S+EM, a web-based map of New York City’s street trees; and Strataspore, a recent iLand project that uses mushrooms as a metaphor to investigate urban landscapes. Renowned landscape artist Mary Miss is keynote speaker.

Mary Miss developed City as Living Lab, a framework for making issues of sustainability tangible through art. Miss uses her training as a sculptor to emphasize a site’s history and ecology. She has collaborated closely with architects, planners, engineers, ecologists, and public administrators on projects that have included creating a temporary memorial around Ground Zero; marking the predicted flood level of Boulder, Colorado; revealing the history of the Union Square subway station in New York City; and turning a sewage treatment plant into a public space
