To Dissolve into the Hydrocommons, One Drop at a Time is a solo exhibition by the artist sTo Len. The show examines the themes of environmental decay and the interconnectedness of global ecosystems by siting the waterways around the New Haven area as places of artistic exploration. Len’s interdisciplinary practice engages viewers to investigate their impact on the environment.

About the Artist
sTo Len is a printmaker, installation, sound, and performance artist interested in improvisation and experimentation within various media. His printmaking work updates traditional techniques such as Suminagashi (floating ink) and Gyotaku (fish impression) into an experimental collaboration with nature and a site of discourse on environmentalism and art activism.
The cross-disciplinary nature of Len’s work includes transforming public spaces such as a river into an art studio, recycling waste into art materials, creating a community pirate radio station, and hosting water ritual performances at Superfund sites.
sTo Len is currently based in Queens, NY. Len has familial roots in Vietnam and Virginia, and his work incorporates these bonds by connecting issues of their history, environment, traditions, and politics.
