Heather Clark is the artist and creator of Sky Stage. Heather utilizes art, architecture, and public interventions to catalyze built environments that power themselves, cleanse themselves, transform waste, provide wildlife habitat, produce food, and enhance the lives of people. Through her art, she demonstrates how present reality is not a given and can be crafted to make life more fulfilling. Art is her tool to shift the paradigm of everyday life.
Heather is founder of Biome Studio where she has designed and developed green affordable housing. Attempting to lead the path toward zero-energy buildings and neighborhoods, she has overseen the largest deep energy retrofit in the U.S., converted historic mills into green affordable housing, and installed over one megawatt of solar pv on 2,300 low-income apartments.
Heather holds a Master of Science in Real Estate Development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, School of Architecture and Planning, and a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University, summa cum laude, in Environmental Science and Community Planning, a self-designed major. Heather is the 2016 recipient of the Virginia Commission for the Arts Sculpture Fellowship Award.
