Heather Green is an artist and educator whose work explores the historical and ecological narratives of a small headland along the Gulf of California in Sonora, Mexico, a place she has known since childhood. Whether photographing the movements of the tide, interviewing fishermen, conferring with regional scientists, or combing the shoreline—investigative fieldwork inspires and informs her projects. Through a collaborative research-based practice of deep mapping, she aims to evoke a nuanced exactitude of place while simultaneously imparting an immensity of wonder. In order to offer the experience as a multidimensional, multi-sensory immersion, her installations use a wide range of media and interactive elements. Whether turning a handle to view a moving image or taking away a hand-printed card, she invites the audience to engage visually as well as haptically, allowing an opportunity for participation that calls for more sustained attention.




Green is a recipient of the 2011 Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Project Grant, the 2010 Community Foundation of Southern Arizona Arts Award, the 2011 Oregon College of Art & Craft Emerging Artist Residency in Book Arts, and the 2023-24 Fulbright Scholar Award. Her work has been shown in Spain, México, Uruguay, and in museums and galleries both regionally and across the United States. A native of Tucson, Heather is an Associate Professor of Book Arts and Printmaking in the Herberger Institute School of Art at Arizona State University.
