This week on the show is artist Mary Mattingly. Mary’s work combines photography, sculpture, architecture and ecology to bring us visions of a post-apocaliptic future — as well as, most importantly, some ideas for how we might survive such a future, or avoid it all together. With works like her wearable homes and The Waterpod Project — a self-sufficient floating artist habitat built on a recycled barge —- Mary’s work offers imaginative and visually stunning experiments in living based on ideas of community, sustainability and individual freedom. Mary’s upcoming solo exhibition is called Mary Mattingly: House and Universe, and it opens at Robert Mann gallery on September 6th.
I visited Mary in her studio in Dumbo to talk about her work and her thoughts on utopia and the future of cities.
Nothing & no one is safe from deep thoughts and weighted emotions in this new introspective indie track. | read
