Heather Green

Fulbright-Cardiff University Scholar Award (All Disciplines)

Heather Green’s Fulbright will take her to the mudflats of the Severn Estuary from Feb–June 2024, where she will work with the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences and the Severn Estuary Partnership at Cardiff University to realize the full scope of Tidal Timespace: Imprints & Palimpsests, an interdisciplinary art project that examines and celebrates the ecology and culture of the Severn Estuary. She will map the visible remains seen at low tide and capture them in a series of casts recording the still-wet, intricate patterns inscribed by snails, currents, and other beings, and gather images and stories about the Estuary for an artist book detailing the diversity and signature of this vital landscape that borders both Wales and England. Green is an Associate Professor of Printmaking and Book Arts at Arizona State University. Her work explores the historical and ecological narratives of the Gulf of California in Sonora, Mexico, a place she has known since childhood.
