StrataSpore

Collaborators: BIG CAAKe: Chris Kennedy (artist, engineer, educator); Athena Kokoronis (choreographer and cook); Caroline Woolard (artist and designer); Kate Cahill (architect); and Gary Lincoff (mycologist).

StrataSpore, using mushrooms as both metaphor and material, will develop approaches to performance and create discussions about infrastructure, networks, and latent potential. StrataSpore is BiG CAAKe’s platform for collective knowledge about local NYC ecosystems and urban sustainability. The platform will cultivate “spores” of knowledge by combining elements of task/performance-based art, experiential learning, and experimental design practice

Waterways: fluid movements in a liquid city is an interdisciplinary research project that examines water through environmental and sociological study and transforms that information into choreographic actions that engage New Yorkers.
