”Mater Matrix Mother and Medium” is a process-based temporary public art project created by installation artist Mandy Greer. It combined a unique blend of community action and personal inquiry, site-embedded installation and a performance produced in collaboration between Mandy, choreographer Zoe Scofield and composer Morgan Henderson, Summer 2009 at Camp Long in Seattle, Wa.

Commissioned by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs using the Seattle Public Utilities 1% for Art Funds, as a way to celebrate and interpret the splendor of Seattle’s urban creeks and encourage community involvement in the stewardship of our essential watersheds.

This project began with the creation of a 200+ foot fiber river, created in part through a series of over 30 community events all over Seattle during the spring of 2009. The River is made up of thousands upon thousands of tiny moments and movements of individual citizens, integrated and interwoven into the natural environment during a 6 week residency at Camp Long
