Becoming Biodiversity @ Pat Dolan Trail (Mauro Playground entrance) | New York | United States

Amy Youngs’ work harnesses technology as a medium to connect humans empathetically with the biodiversity, symbioses, and unseen worlds in our natural environment. Her latest project, Becoming Biodiversity, is a guided app tour of the Pat Dolan Trail. It consists of mixed-reality animations and narration that invite the viewer to re-enact stories from the perspectives of non-humans, such as a plant calling out to a bird to help with pest control, an underground fungal network delivering goods to struggling trees, and a cormorant searching for a meal in a man-made lake.
We will start off the event with the Becoming Biodiversity tour, follow up with a Q&A with the artist, and conclude with a planting session. Please install the free Becoming Biodiversity app to participate in the tour, and bring headphones if possible. Register here, as space is limited: https://allianceforfmcp.org/b-b
