Environmental artist Jill Powers spent two weeks at a Terraphilia Residency in Salida Colorado during the spring of 2013. This video briefly touches in Ms. Powers' sculptural work with kozo fiber and her recent art installation at the Firehouse Gallery in Longmont Colorado; that gallery installation focused on the bark beetle epidemics currently plaguing Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. Jill Powers used scientific research to inform her art pieces, and sees her art as an educational effort as well as an artistic endeavor.
