Frame 301 Gallery

January 8, 2018 - February 24, 2018

Gallery Hours

David Buckley Borden’s installation, Site Visit, can now be viewed at the 301 Frame Gallery at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. Site Visit is a traveling installation intended to promote a cultural ecology supported by art-based interdisciplinary science-communication. The installation includes twenty-four speculative design objects ranging from “Back 40 Eco Monitors” for the suburban corporate-class compound to a “Flood Light Warning System” aimed at warning coastal citizens of approaching storm flooding. 

David Buckley Borden is a Cambridge-based interdisciplinary artist and designer known for his creative practice of making ecological issues culturally relevant to the general public by means of accessible art and design. David studied landscape architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and worked with Sasaki Associates and Ground before focusing his practice at the intersection of landscape, creativity, and cultural event. David’s work now manifests in a variety of forms, ranging from site-specific landscape installations in the woods to data-driven cartography in the gallery. David’s place-based projects highlight both pressing environmental issues and everyday phenomena and have recently earned him residencies at the Santa Fe Arts Institute, Teton Art Lab, Trifecta Hibernaculum, and MASS MoCA. David was a 2016/2017 Bullard Fellow at the Harvard Forest where he answered the question, “How can art and design foster cultural cohesion around environmental issues and help inform ecology-minded decision making?”
