  • Dylan Gauthier and Elizabeth Knafo – Understanding commodities, v.1


    sandpile-montage-200Understanding commodities, v.1: several investigations into the method and logic of the self-organizing sands of Baltimore.

    Dylan Gauthier & Elizabeth Knafo will perform a series of experiments to expand our understanding of the nature (flows, exchange values, self-organized criticality) of the iconic dunes.

    Elizabeth Knafo is a multi-disciplinary artist who works with print design, video and as a food justice organizer with the Brooklyn Food Coalition and runs Green My Bodega with Dylan Gauthier: a media activism and organizing project designed to connect local farmers and their goods to central Brooklyn bodegas. She has worked as a designer in publishing, as a teaching artist and is currently getting her MFA at Hunter College. This summer she will be farming for a small CSA in Brooklyn.

    Dylan Gauthier is an artist, activist and performer based in New York City, where he also builds boats as 1/3 of the Mare Liberum boatbuilding and publishing collective. The collective has shown boats and staged workshops domestically and internationally, and locally at venues such as the Neuberger Museum, Purchase, New York and the EFA Project Space in Manhattan. Prior to that, Dylan ran the Empty Vessel Project, a floating art and sustainability experiment on the Gowanus Canal. Dylan is also an MFA Candidate in the Integrated Media Arts program at Hunter College.
