Mazzotta works at the intersection of art, activism and urbanism, focusing on the power of the built environment to shape our relationships and experiences. During his presentation, Mazzotta will expand on how his community- specific public projects integrate new forms of civic participation and social engagement into the built environment and reveal how the spaces we travel through and spend our time living within have the potential to become distinct sites for meaningful exchange. His talk will also provide insight into his process of community listening to engage people from a range of backgrounds in dialogue to create new models of living that contribute to local culture beyond the economic realm.
Mazzotta's projects have been internationally recognized and his most recent site-specific public art commission, a larger-than-life flamingo titled HOME (2022), has already established an iconic and memorable presence in the Main Terminal of the Tampa International Airport.
