Nicholas Fraser, Field & Stream (with Heidi Neilson), 2009, site specific chalk installations (14th St, NYC), dimensions variable

A collaboration with Heidi Neilson.

For one day, at nearly 40 locations, color coded chalk texts describing various types of long disappeared forest and water features were placed in the approximate location of the now urbanized sites. Based on a printed map (Urban Forest on 14th Street, 2009) Neilson produced comparing flora and fauna from 1609 to those present in 2009. The texts function as historical markers, albeit ones doomed to disappear as completely as the features described.
