Melissa F. Clarke

In Residence June 2019

Melissa F. Clarke is a Brooklyn based interdisciplinary artist whose work employs data and generative self-programmed compositional environments. She creates multimedia installations, generative video and sound sculptures, performances, and printed images. Her work often explores bathymetry data that describes the landscapes beneath glacier carved waterways, including the Hudson River and seas around Antarctica and Greenland. For her residency with Works on Water and Underwater New York, Clarke will be looking towards the confluence of the Hudson and East Rivers, where the Upper NY Bay begins, and revisit her process of using Bathymetric Data to create a time based experiential installation.
