Jane Philbrick is an artist, educator, and writer. Her large-scale installations and sculpture range in media from ultrasound and rammed earth to magnetic levitation and found space. She works in collaboration across disciplines in science and engineering, architecture, music, and performance. She currently teaches in the Art, Media, Technology Program, Parsons School of Design/The New School, New York City.
Philbrick's primary project is disruptive community-based real estate development, applying holistic and synthetic methodologies of artist practice to brownfield regeneration; tools range from design, finance, and policy to urban theory, soil science, activism, and poetics. The goal is an equitable, ecological, compassionate society, from the ground up.
With colleagues from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, she founded the multidisciplinary practice TILL (Today's Industrial Living Landscapes). TILL seeks community-specific solutions that engage the global context. TILL fiscal sponsorship is provided by the New York Foundation for the Arts.
