Maya Ciarrocchi uses storytelling and embodied mapmaking to reveal vanished histories. At Wave Hill, she continued developing Mosholu, an interdisciplinary walk and drawing series that maps the rerouting of Tibbetts Brook, a near-by Bronx waterway. Ciarrocchi is also designing a public walk and gathering raw materials for an accompanying artist book and audio/video guide. Once an important resource for food and navigation, Tibbetts Brook was called Mosholu by the Lenape. Although the original path has largely been forgotten, its presence may be seen in the contemporary landscape when there is significant flooding along the Broadway corridor.
