Brian Collier's projects, installations, and public interventions range across a wide variety of media, including websites, video, sculpture, photography, drawing, artist's books, and performance. Through this diverse practice he focuses on ways in which elements of the non-human natural world exist, or have reinserted themselves, in severely human-altered habitats. Through his projects, he disseminates information about these sites, often proposing strategies to re-evaluate the weedy margins of the human-dominated landscape.
Collier is founder and president of The Society for a Re-Natural Environment. For Of Land & Local, Collier will introduce a Eat Local Invasives, a project focused on finding ways to eat Vermont’s edible invasive plant species. Collier is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
