Time-Space Species: Glacial relics and the thrush 

"Time-Space Species: Glacial relics and the thrush" is an exhibit of works created by Cortada during his residency at White Mountain National Forest . The exhibit focuses on three sensitive species living in the WMNF at the top of Mt. Washington that allow us to see nature through the prism of space (habitat: global migration and habitat change) and time (evolution: glacial relics, evolving subspecies):  

The White Mountain Arctic (Oeneis melissa semidea) and the White Mountain Fritillary (Boloria titania montinus) are glacial relics.  These butterflies evolved as subspecies at the mountain’s alpine elevations after the glaciers receded.  Scientist’s have yet to discover the plant the Arctic Butterfly uses to lay its eggs, so it is difficult to gauge potential global climate change threats.

The Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus bicknelli) only summer habitat is below the alpine area in White Mountain National Forest, a habitat shrinking as global climate change allows hardwoods to encroach from below and high winds at the alpine elevations restrict the upper boundaries of their dense Balsam Fir habitat.  This bird species migrates to habitats beyond the forest boundaries, wintering on the island of Hispaniola, where its habitat is being deforested. Researchers are focused on the effects of acid rain and the deposition of mercury at the top of WMNF mountains as possible causes for dwindling species populations.

2012 White Mountain National Forest Artists-in-Residence

Artist Xavier Cortada and composer Juan Carlos Espinosa are currently serving as Artists-in-Residence at White Mountain National Forest.   The residency is presented in collaboration with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire (www.aannh.org).  

They have worked together on numerous projects over the last few years, most of them have been related to their shared environmental concerns. Their eco-art practice is defined by interdisciplinary collaboration and participatory practices that involve artists, scientists, communities with the goal of public awareness and bioremediation.

During July 2012, the artists will work with White Mountain National Forest foresters, scientists and trail builders and the local community to develop ideas for their work. Inspired by and responding to the forest, the artists will create site-specific works and temporary installations. Read residency blog at: www.whitemountaintrailmix.wordpress.com
