AND PUBLIC ART PROJECTS.


The Developer’s Midnight Fantasy [DMF]
         
DMF is a cross disciplinary, collaborative community art installation & performance with original music, dance, poetry art & neuroscience. DMF invites visitors to imagine a clear-cutting of a native forest to construct more buildings & parking lots. The ongoing destruction of forests is an under-recognized problem. This project seeks to make us think about development not just in the abstract but here in our own backyard.

Sponsored by the Office of Equity and Inclusion and the Chief Diversity Officer. In partnership with the Zuccaire Gallery. Friends of the Ashley Schiff Preserve Scholarship.


Music by Tommy Wu & Daniel Cohen
Poetry by Michelle Whittaker
Dance Ensemble by Amy Yopp Sullivan
Costumes by Marta Baumiller
Neuroscience by Arianna Maffai



Hi Digger, 2021Cut and Blow — They trimmed our beautiful trees; no warning — too much sky. Mercury in retrograde.

The woods are a
buried treasure.

 The Ashley Schiff forest is a preserve in name only. Legislation to designate the preserve a state park has not been passed. So Ashley Schiff has no offical protection.

The ultimate goal of the project is for the Ashley Schiff Preserve to be granted permanent preservation status to ensure that future generations of Stony Brook’s human, floral and faunal communities continue to benefit from this underutilized resourse. University students, faculty, staff and visitors will be invited to write letters and hopes on a collective tree near the enterance of Ashley Schiff on Circle Drive to engage in this cross-disciplinary and collaborative, community event.
