My career as an installation artist and ocean advocate was ignited, fostered and strengthened here. This art program pushes interdisciplinary action throughout all variations of thought, research, collaboration and creation and exists in a landscape that radiates with energy like an exposed nerve. It is not possible to create here without thinking of our planet’s power, health, potential and future.
