With a chartered boat from Island Vetnture Diving, the ARTSail team and Resident Artists, Caecilia and Kerwin, were accompanied by local visual art and climate science journalists Nicole Martinez, Kate Stein and Mario Ariza, to record more sounds of climate change.
Even when we’re not ‘on or under’ water, the ARTSail team is keeping busy! Here we are meeting with Maria Elena Ortiz, Associate Curator at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, Sophie Landres, Curator of Public Programs and Education at the Museum of Art and Design at MDC, Vanessa Selk, cultural attaché for the French Embassy in Miami and founder of the Toute Le Monde Festival, and Marie Vickles, Director of Education at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
On June 9th the ARTSail team undertook its first recording expedition courtesy of Nat Roura and Dora Puig to Soldiers Key and Fowey Rocks Lighthouse. Kerwin Rolland, assisted by Ron Andruff, started recording the sounds of marine life in the three locations we visited previously scouted by ARTSail historical nautical consultant, Gustavo Oviedo. Weather worked with us, even the downpour we experienced in our first stop enhanced the thrill of our first underwater mission!
Caecilia and Kerwin will spend most of the month of June in Miami to record sounds of marine life surrounding coral reefs in Miami and the Keys to create The Coral Sonata!
We are overjoyed and thankful for all the support we received! 205 backers enabled us to raise over $21,000 to bring artist Caecilia Tripp to Miami as our fourth artist in residence!

Excited to announce our crowdfunding campaign to support ARTSail upcoming spring 2019 residency with artist Caecilia Tripp. On October 10 we are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Tripp's ambitious research and sound project, The Coral Sonata. During her residency, she'll use state-of-the-art technology to record the underwater sounds of South Florida's diverse coral populations, documenting an audio portrait of the effects of climate change.
We are sorry to announce that Mark Lee Koven’s interactive installation, the outcome of his ARTsail residency, will be postponed to a later date.
One Drop at a Time is an immersive interactive and participatory installation that integrates data collection, education and technology with art. Participants have the opportunity to better understand their local climate as well as share personal stories, beliefs, and perceptions about climate change. Participants are immersed in a 360-degree surround sound and video loop that includes video footage shot during Mark Koven’s ARTSail residency in South Florida, as well as 3D printed objects and interactive activities taking place inside of a mobile planetarium dome.
Stay tuned for further announcements!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our second resident, curator Blanca de la Torre. Blanca is a Spanish curator, currently based between Spain and Mexico City. From 2009 to 2013, she was the Chief Curator at ARTIUM, Basque Museum-Center of Contemporary Art(Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain). Since 2014, she curated exhibitions at museums and institutions in Europe, Latin America and the US as an independent curator. Her interest in environmental art, eco-aesthetic and eco-feminism brought her to explore these subjects through her curatorial activity and her writings. She recently inaugurated the exhibition HYBRIS at the MUSAC (Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon).
