Aviva Rahmani’s Blued Trees

A couple of years ago artist and curator Linda Weintraub introduced me to Aviva Rahmani and I got to take part in her Blued Trees installation/performance piece at the International Studio & Curatorial Program. Aviva is an amazing artist who created this work to fight corporations installing pipelines across public and private land, often through the use of eminent domain. It’s critically important work and I’m proud to have taken part.

Aviva recently asked me to record the voiceover track for the piece she has planned for the Queens Museum. I’m very excited to continue my involvement with this project and will update when I know more. In the meantime you can learn more about this work on Aviva’s website and the Blued Trees Facebook page.
