Heather Green is an interdisciplinary visual artist and educator whose work explores the ecological narratives of a small headland along 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, mapping and naming. 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.
Green is a recipient of the Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Project Grant, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona Arts Award, and the Oregon College of Art & Craft Emerging Artist Residency in Book Arts. Her work has been shown in Spain, México, Uruguay, and in museums and galleries both regionally and across the United States. A native of Tucson, Green is currently Associate Professor of Book Arts and Printmaking in the Herberger Institute School of Art at Arizona State University. heathergreen-art.com
