Embodied Mapping forged connections across scales of public and private. The residency connected communities by creating a mapping system that uncovered hidden synchronicities, intersections, and potentialities about the neighborhood that are not readily apparent or accessed at the street level. The collaborators’ process included charrettes, collecting, book making, and other ways of experimenting with mapping through the body. These practices derived from architecture, oral history, visual arts, performance, and dance.
Kathy Creutzburg is a public artist who has used the landscape to inspire her sculpture and mixed media installations at the Figment summer-long sculpture garden on Governors Island, Kenkeleba House sculpture garden, Abrons Art Center, Michael Mut Project Space, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Her recent restoration of public artworks originally created by herself and other artists at PS61M showcases her abilities as a designer, fabricator, and facilitator.
