First Five with Natalie Jeremijenko


Natalie Jeremijenko directs the xdesign Environmental Health Clinic.  Her work was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial of American Art (also in 1997) and the Cooper Hewit Smithsonian Design Triennial 2006-7. She has a permanently installed Model Urban Development on the roof of Postmasters Gallery in Chelsea. 

Ever wanted to have an office with stretching views of Manhattan, right on the waterfront ... and in the canopy of a lovely shady tree? Actually you can reserve your time in the Tree Office now, because it is a forthcoming project of Jeremijenko, produced as part of the Civic Action project at Socrates Sculpture Park. Or you can join the "space race of the C21st" which is how Jeremijenko describes the systems challenges of urban agriculture by grabbing an agbag that can transform your railing, window sill, parapet or fence and some thin air into arable territory. 

Here are Natalie's first five...
