The Developer’s Midnight Fantasy is a two-week art installation that invites visitors to consider the fragility of nature through an imagined clear-cutting of the Ashley Schiff Preserve, a nature preserve located at Stony Brook University. The staging asks participants to question their assumptions about the permanence of forests. Forests can help us to heal, feel more creative, and respect nature, but forests are at risk. The ongoing destruction of forests is an under-recognized problem. This project seeks to make us think about development everywhere, and especially our connection with nature.
