Heather Green is an interdisciplinary visual artist, educator and Associate Professor of Book Arts and Printmaking at the Herberger Institute School of Art at Arizona State University. Her research examines more-than-human encounters in the intertidal and ecological narratives of abundance and loss on a small headland in the Gulf of California in Sonora, Mexico. Whether documenting the movements of the tide, interviewing fishermen, collaborating with scientists, or combing the shoreline—she aims to evoke a nuanced exactitude of place, attuning to its more subtle reaches through a practice of walking and mapping. 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.
