Susannah Sayler along with Edward Morris works in photography, video, writing and installation. Of primary concern are contemporary efforts to develop ecological consciousness and the possibilities for art within a social activist praxis. In 2006 they co-founded The Canary Project - a collaborative that produces visual media and artworks that deepen public understanding of climate change, particularly the challenge and opportunities it presents to the organization of human society. Works from The Canary Project have shown in diverse venues, including: art museums such as The Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver and the Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse, NY); science museums such as the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago, IL); universities; public art projects; magazines; city halls; etc. In 2008-2009 Sayler and Morris were Loeb Fellows at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design.
