Turbulence Commission: "Superfund365, A Site-A-Day" by Brooke Singer

"Superfund365, A Site-A-Day" is an online data visualization application
with an accompanying RSS-feed and email alert system. Each day for a year
"Superfund365" will visit one toxic site currently active in the Superfund
program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We begin the
journey in the New York City area and work our way across the country,
ending the year in Hawaii. In the end, the archive will consist of 365
visualizations of some of the worst toxic sites in the U.S., roughly a
quarter of the total number on the Superfund's National Priorities List
(NPL). Along the way, we will conduct video interviews with people involved
with or impacted by Superfund. Content changes every day so be sure to visit
often or use the subscribe tools to have content delivered to you.


"Superfund365" is conceived, designed and produced by Brooke Singer. The
programming and Flash guru behind the project is John Kuiphoff. Kurt
Olmstead provides business analysis and additional programming. Emily
Gallagher is assisting with project research and EPA relations. Camera and
sound work by Andrew Rueland.

"Superfund365" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
for its Turbulence website. It was made possible with funding from the
Jerome Foundation. Additional funding was provided by New York Foundation
for the Arts (NYFA).


Brooke Singer is a digital media artist who lives in New York City. Her work
provides entry into important social issues that are often characterized as
specialized or opaque to a general public. She likes to work with emerging
technologies not only because they are fun but also because they are
contingent and malleable. She is co-founder of the art, technology and
activist group, Preemptive Media, and Assistant Professor of New Media at
Purchase College.
