In 2000, The Smart Museum
commissioned new projects from artists Mark Dion, Peter Fend, and Dan Peterman, each focusing on interrelationships between particular organisms--human beings-and a specific group of sites--a museum building, a river landscape, and a university campus. The results evoke the varied scales, from the microscopic to the global, at which human actions affect the environment.
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
