SALT MARSH SUITE is a collaborative, inter-media art installation and contemporary dance performance that is based in many years of fieldwork, data collection, and close observation of a North Carolina coastal estuary. The project combines art, science, and technology in an immersive environment, engaging the audience in the beautiful and magical qualities of the marsh and the life within it, while giving a sense of its vulnerability.
