Mary Mattingly is a Brooklyn-based artist. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and documentation, Mattingly’s work proposes possible futures involving increased mobile infrastructure, local and community networks of exchange, and interdependent living-systems.
Mattingly’s project “Triple Island” is a scalable, amphibious ecosystem that serves as a habitat in preparation for increased ecological instability and the dearth of livable land; and as a public experiment about living with the altered environments of our shared future.
