Vanishing Point was installed with the help of Focal Point Gallery and Metal in the UK:
Focal Point Gallery and Metal announced this public art commission as part of Estuary 2021. Vanishing Point, a two part installation comprised of a learning centre located on Southend Pier and a floating sculpture moored in nearby waters. It considers how the plant life of the Thames Estuary has evolved and responded to a changing climate over millions of years, and how this knowledge might be used as a prediction for a nearing future.

June 30, This week a Year of Public Water launched with @moreartnyc. A Year of Public Water is an invitation to examine our relationship to water in order to co-build more equitable partnerships between downstream water-receiving communities and upstream water-source communities. Join us each week for a new release of content including research, guest interviews, and calls to action. Click the link in our bio to access public-water.com or follow #YearOfPublicWater
A Year of Public Water examines the complex history of NYC's drinking watershed, bringing attention to the often unseen labor that people, along with the broader ecological community, undertake to care for water. As the U.S. experiences a heightened health, economic, environmental, and water poverty crisis, millions of people face obstacles to access safe, clean running water daily. Agricultural runoff, byproducts of disinfection agents, as well as aging infrastructure like lead pipes have contaminated drinking water, especially in BIPOC and low-income communities. Addressing environmental, health, and economic conditions in and around New York City’s watershed and public water system is a vital precondition for the creation of a more just present and future for upstream and downstream New Yorkers. A Year of Public Water is an invitation to examine our relationship to water in order to co-build more equitable partnerships between downstream water-receiving communities and upstream water-source communities. public-water.com

"Mary Mattingly Owns Up" on Art 21 New York Close Up
July 21, This new “Earth Issue” shares parts of the Wearable Homes project I worked on in-depth from 2001-2008. I started making wearable sculptures in 2001. They incorporated very personal concerns about a growing lack of access to clean water with future speculations about sea level rise and ecological instability. As both a climate change prediction and an assumption that more people will lack access to basic resources, the “Wearable Homes” project bordered on an absurd and dystopic commentary about what consumption could look like after most everything imaginable had been sold and people navigated through desertified terrains. While the project assumed one set of future conditions based on a dominant extractive culture, it also fetishized an alienation brought on by electric technologies and control. The pandemic has created another set of conditions for separation. It strikes me that 'reachers' and 'receivers' on the Wearable Homes (so there would be no need for bodily contact with each other) would have been undeniably useful in the time of Coronavirus physical distancing.
During Coronavirus I started making and wearing the wearable homes again. These are simple, monastic suits, they don’t do anything special.

June 16th, ecofeminism(s) opens at Thomas Erben Gallery in Manhattan
May 22, I wrote about coronavirus in March for Art Spiel and in May for the Wall Street Journal. We're of course still in it, and I've been making wearable homes (a project I focused on between 2001 - 2006) but these are more monastic. I've also been able to complete a commission for a pollinator color field, and have spent part of the spring with plants. I have an autoimmune disease which makes me more succeptible to coronavirus, so plants are an ideal community for me this spring. I coudn't be more grateful.

On September 30th, "Everything At Once" opens in Boulder, Colorado with Boulder Public Art.
What are the connections between military action and material extraction in the U.S.? How do we understand a bigger system that was written for us, before us, and by proxy perpetuated by us? The ever presence of objects with violent histories undeniably draws out the connections and contradictions we live with everyday in the U.S. With an expanding military economy and slow erosion of public services, the sculpture titled “Everything At Once” engages not in silence or silos but instead turns outward to reimagine public life together. Charred wood from a U.S. public school, a military trailer used in Afghanistan, public water, agricultural tank, plants, and light make a bridge for communication and a platform for contemplation. “Everything At Once” asks: Can we process complex histories through the transformation of objects in order to collectively imagine other ways of being in the world?xx
On September 7th, WANDERLUST: ACTIONS, TRACES, JOURNEYS 1967-2017 opens at University of Buffalo's UB Art Gallery.

April 27, Swale is part of a national campaign "Nature Remix" in a partnership with Strongbow Ciders. Through this partnership, we were able to add 200 new plant varieties to Swale including 8 apple trees, terraform more growing space, and, most importantly, continue Swale's mission of providing free food for anyone to pick from. This partnership also expands our public-facing initiatives of building stewardship throughout New York CIty.<
This year, Swale, along with many community groups, has also made policy-facing strides.The New York City Department of Parks will break ground on its first public food forest on land, creating a precedent that parts ways with a 100-year old law stating that picking food from public land in NYC is considered destruction of property.
April 15, I'm thrilled to be speaking at the University of Pennsylvania as part of the Ecotopian Toolkit Conference, organized by Bethany Wiggin and Environmental Humanities fellow Patricia Kim, among other inspiring people.

The UFS is both a physical place to conduct research (the research facility at Fort Totten) and a network of scientists, practitioners, university partners, and facilities that focus on urban ecology. Since its founding in 2006, the UFS has engaged over 30 non-profit, academic, and government partners creating “research in action” programs to support urban ecosystem management and sustainability initiatives in New York City.

In February I'll be working @ MoMA Education offering: Make Art Not War - Transforming Military Materials into Social Spaces: Through design workshops and collaborative projects, participants will reinvent a disused military-grade trailer, turning an object of war into an all-encompassing artistic and social environment. What new space can this object become? Participants are in charge of every step of the process, from budgeting to designing to assembling and more.
On Trauma, Grief and Resilience: A project at the Museum of Modern Art.
How can art ask us to think deeply about resilience, and what it means to be resilient? Which experiences are supposed to be remembered and which are supposed to be forgotten? How can we begin to imagine a nonviolent world when we are rarely allowed to grieve over its violence? Objects can connect us through their histories and the powerful stories they carry with them. When we are able to change their form, it can be monumental. We can add our own voice and that can be healing. In the fall of 2015 I proposed a project to the Museum of Modern Art’s education department. What would it mean to take an object with a violent history and cooperatively transform it? How could a project work, and what shape would it finally take? Most of all, how can we begin to share our experiences and differences through an intergenerational, multiracial, and multinational conversation about pain, and love?
I hoped we could tell a story about changing national priorities – from a war and consumption-centered nation to one that is eager to learn from its own violence and vulnerability. Here’s what I proposed: I would purchase a US military trailer at government auction and the students would be the idea makers, the re-creators. They would architect the redesign, keep the budget, and be the project managers. I would facilitate, question, advise on, and ultimately champion their ideas. A trailer that had been redelivered to the US from Iraq was ours to work with. With seventeen high school students, we began with a series of architectural charrettes. We decided upon a criteria, or guidelines that defined what’s important to us that should be reflected in the project. It was overwhelmingly practical: what we had the budget for, our aesthetic positions, and most of all our concerns about safety. Even with all of us, this two-ton trailer was a force. In the following weeks, we created drawings and maquettes. We started and then later abandoned a series of ideas.
The things we didn’t end up doing: We didn’t turn the military trailer into a park or a garden.
We didn’t turn the military trailer into a mobile kitchen.
We didn’t turn the military trailer into a giant printmaking press.
We didn’t use the tires for tire swings.
We didn’t completely deconstruct the trailer and rebuild it into a sphere.
We didn’t turn the military trailer into an art studio.
We didn’t turn the military trailer on its side and project films on the trailer bed.
We didn’t melt the military trailer down and mold the steel into a sword.
Instead we made it into a social space that’s near impossible to define. It was a small piece of each of those things; it came from different voices and took months of compromise and working together. It came from a process of learning how to use new tools and taking time to teach each other the tools we were already skilled in. The project was not about resilience but instead about revaluing the ability to grieve. From there, it was about transforming an object into a symbol, and then into a space. We looked for a premade form to process some of those emotions collectively, but finally had to create a new one. After all, I wondered, what new potentials might develop if resilience was less valued? Like the faith many have in market expansion, resilience is a temporary fix, and has often been a way to leave the larger questions unanswered and problems unaddressed.

In Late September I'll be in Toronto launching Torus as part of Nuit Blanche curated by Christine Shaw "The Work of the Wind". Join us for a workshop that asks: In an era of schizophrenia, can art still bring us closer towards embodying the world we want? Extractive production and excessive consumption have become as violent as military activity. In this workshop we will extract consumption, gift in excess, and discuss ways that art, performance, and ritual can make spaces for mourning environmental loss. Through dialogue, diagramming, making and sharing rituals, we will task ourselves with re-mapping systems of the post-industrial/higher education/military complex, and draft steps towards forming the spaces we want to inhabit. We will spend time assembling a meditative space for a performance on the water that will take place during Nuit Blanche. During our time together we will continually question the following: Can we create more mindful rituals that point towards change? Could we spend more time discussing change with the choir? In an era of schizophrenia, can art still bring us closer towards embodying the world we want?
