The Nine Mile Run Greenway Project is an interdisciplinary research team directed by artists. They brought together engineers, scientists, historians and others to create a civic dialogue about public space in the context of an urban brownfield. The team conducted ecological studies and created diverse alternative art works, such as a construction trailer as a site of public expression, a pirate citizens radio station, a web site as a tool for civic dialogue, post-modern interpretive re-carthography, and policy analysis as if people and places mattered.
