Performance artist Ann Carlson offers unique view of Jasper Ridge

Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve recently hosted Picture Jasper Ridge: A Performance Hike – a 70-minute "tableau vivante" experience combining a walk in the preserve with actors recreating historic photos near the actual locations where the photos were taken.

Picture Jasper Ridge is the work of Ann Carlson, an American dancer, choreographer, and performance artist. Carlson is currently in residence with the Stanford University Drama Department for the 2011-12 academic year and is the inaugural visiting artist at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve during the Winter Quarter.
