7pm: Join Jennifer Booher again at 7pm in Moore Auditorium for “Coast Walk,” a presentation by the artist. “My current project, the Coast Walk, is a mixture of art and citizen science: in an effort to gain a deeper understanding of human uses and the natural processes at work on the shore, I am walking and beachcombing the entire coastline of Mount Desert Island, creating still life photographs of things I find. I will be meeting with dozens of people along the way to learn about the natural history of the island and the ways in which various groups of people use or have used the shoreline; I’ve already met with a marine biologist, a Wabanaki cultural historian, and the curator of a local historical society; future scheduled Walkers include a geologist, seabird experts, a scuba diver, an estate caretaker, a family genealogist, a junior-high school science teacher, and a tour boat captain. I have also spoken with local National Park representatives about including current and retired Park personnel in the project. The interviews are woven into the narrative of my walk, along with the the photos I take along the way, and are posted at http://jenniferbooher.com/wp-walking/ At the end of the project, I plan to compile the blog posts and still lives into a book, and donate a copy to each of Mount Desert Island’s public libraries.” - Jennifer Booher
