Eco-artist Mary Mattingly, who creates site-specific human habitats, will Skype in. Mattingly recently launched a three-part project: three spherical living systems incorporating rainwater collection, which cycled water through edible gardens, solar panels, and enclosed living spaces. These spheres were choreographed through New York City’s five boroughs. WetLand (Part Three) is currently on view at Penn’s Landing and will launch from the Delaware River in Philadelphia.
