About Professor Screech, a.k.a. Autumn Kioti
The creation and transmission of a narrative is integral to Autumn’s work as an artist, naturalist and storyteller; the best kind of “going viral.” It is Autumn’s wildest hope that the narratives created bring viewers and participants closer to an understanding that humans are of nature and not separate from it; dismantling the idea of the scala naturae, and planting our feet firmly on the Earth beside our non-human brethren. And maybe creating a little magic and silliness too. Past artist residencies and collaborations include the NYC Audubon, Audubon Everglades, the Santa Fe Art Institute, Art Monastery Italia, NOoSphere Arts, Rohi’s Readery, ecoAmerica, Resource Depot, Wild Bird Fund, American Littoral Society, and more.
