Radio Day: Interview with artist Jenifer Wightman

Recently my favorite pup Lily joined me on an outing to the Siuslaw Model Forest in Acra, NY, where I had a fascinating conversation with artist and scientist Jenifer Wightman as she constructed her art piece, "Transect" -- part of the recent "Whale Oil to Whole Foods" exhibit co-sponsored by the Greene County Council on the Arts and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Agroforestry Center.

Produced by Deborah Artman.
With technical assistance by Leo Joy.
Music excerpts are from Michael Gordon's CDs, Weather and Trance.
