Artist Bio

Lillian Ball is an artist and environmental activist working in New York. Water imagery has been an constant subtext, but recent subject matter focuses specifically on environmental concerns. The recent work, ‘Leap of Faith’, uses photography and video installation to address the issues around an ongoing wetland preservation project on the North Fork of Long Island. She has developed interactive game installations such as GO ECO. Metaphorically based on the ancient Asian game of Go, this serious game uses video projections to encourage cooperation while guiding players through a wetland preservation.

A multidisciplinary background in anthropology, ethnographic film, and sculpture inform her work. She has received numerous awards including a New York State Foundation for the Arts – Fellowship in Computer Arts, a John-Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Visual Arts, and a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in Sculpture. She has exhibited internationally, and traveled widely. An invitation to make a piece for a Swedish Embassy symposium resulted in a trip to Lapland above the Arctic Circle. Her new media installations have been exhibited in WEATHER REPORT at Boulder MOCA, GROUNDWORKS: ENVIRONMENTAL COLLABORATION IN CONTEMPORARY ART at Carnegie Mellon University Gallery, THE DROP at Exit Art in NYC, and in solo shows, LEAP OF FAITH at Art Sites, Riverhead and GO ECO, at the Queens Museum of Art.

In 2007, Ball curated Called to Action: Environmental Restoration by Artists at artsites gallery.
