Polli, Andrea :

on individuals are the focus of Polli’s creative research, which resides in the intersection between art and science. Currently Ms. Polli collaborates with meteorological and environmental scientists to develop systems of understanding the weather and the impact of climate on the future of human life. At Hunter College, New York, Polli is an Associate Professor of Film and Media as well as the faculty in the MFA Program in Integrated Media Arts.

Gallagher, Emily:

Emily Gallagher is a Smithsonian trained tour director and New York City history enthusiast who looks to intersect art practice and the urban environment.  New York City is a transmitter of human energy, struggle and triumph, and Gallagher believes that by coaxing the hidden and forgotten stories from cracks in the ground, we can capture, examine and understand the human condition, and build a better, more interesting future– a brighter layer on top of the cement.  Emily contributes to this vision by developing offbeat New York guided walks, and exploring ways of intervening with the traditional urban experience.
