“Meshing the clarity of maps and diagrams, and the accessibility of science with the visceral sense of the site, I try to create an instant of wonder and understanding for the viewer.”
Stacy Levy often works collaboratively with architects & landscape architects: she has recently worked with the Pittsburgh Park Conservancy to artfully infiltrate storm water at Frick Park's new Environmental Center as part of a Living Building Challenge. She has worked with Biohabitats Inc and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society on Pier 53 on the Delaware River to create a park where the plant roots and freeze/thaw cycle begins to breakdown the hardscape. She often makes works that draw people outdoors: In Phoenix AZ, Levy created meandering and shaded walking path to connect a neighborhood with its new library with Richard + Bauer Architects. She is presently making a floating wetland based on the Spiral Jetty for the Walton Art Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which will help filter the nitrogen and phosphorus from the lake water.
