Brooklyn-based artist and Pratt alumna Swoon (Caledonia Curry, B.F.A. ‘02) has been described by The New York Times as someone who “has inspired a lot of wonderment” (Melena Ryzik, August 6, 2014). She is widely known for distinctive prints that are wheat-pasted to abandoned buildings and other locations, as well as for large-scale, site-specific installations. 

In this short video, Swoon discusses Submerged Motherlands, her installation at the Brooklyn Museum (from April 11-August 24, 2014) that addresses climate change, and the influence that her Pratt education has on her work.
