Here is a video about environmental art and its role in questioning and shifting culture and values. It features Jennifer Marsh’s 2007-2009 Gas Station Project in Syracuse to wrap an abandoned gas station in my neighborhood with panels of various fabrics. In addition to an interview with Jennifer, you can watch me and my student Caroline Massa talk about the project and environmental art in general.
