Clarinda Mac Low will be working on the next version of Sunk Shore, a speculative, experiential tour of our climate changed future that takes place along specific shorelines, created in collaboration with Carolyn Hall (in residence in September). The tour is based in a deep dive into climate change data, and is built to make the facts more physically tangible. This is the second year that the tour will be happening on Governors Island and Mac Low wants to know--what is YOUR vision of the future? You can sign up for a visit and conversation here--bring your expertise into the picture. Also, objects from the future may appear in studio.
Clarinda Mac Low began in dance and molecular biology and now creates participatory events investigating social constructs and corporeal experience. She is Executive of Culture Push, an organization linking artistic practice and civic engagement, and one of the co-founders and core team members of Works on Water. Mac Low’s recent work includes: “Sunk Shore,” a speculative tour of the future; “Incredible Witness,” game-based investigation of the sensory origins of empathy; “Free the Orphans,” spiritual and intellectual implications of intellectual property in a digital age; and "Cyborg Nation," public conversation on the technological body and intimacy.
