Katie Holten was born in Dublin and now lives and works in New York. "At the root of Katie Holten's practice is a curiosity with life's systems. Examining the meaning of 'environment' and the significance of place, her work is on ongoing investigation of the inextricable relationship between man and the natural world. She has previously collaborated with historians, geophysicists, musicians, botanists, ecologists, teachers, and architects, on projects as diverse as creating a temporary outdoor museum along a street in New York City or revealing the affects of climate change on weeds."
I love her delicate black and white drawings and the brilliant public art project Tree Museum that celebrates the communities and ecosystems along the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
