Little Fish

For my required MFA-IA Presentation of Practice at Goddard College, I created Little Fish; an interactive puppet show showcasing the effects nitrogen pollution has on aquatic life. The story is centered around Millers Pond, a community pond in Smithtown, NY.

To tell the complex story of nitrogen pollution I developed Scuppets (sculpted puppets) to address nitrogen runoff into Millers Pond, a pond in my local community (Nissequogue River/Smithtown Bay Watershed).

Millers Pond’s “Lady of the Lake” attends to the fish living in the pond suffering from Nitrogen’s infiltration. How will this be solved? Will Nitrogen have to go on a diet? This is what the audience has to find out. The performance concludes with a procession around Millers Pond.
