Based in San Pedro, CA, Sierra Brown is renowned for her previous ocean-based endurance works. Brown has performed works like 2007’s Supercommute, which included a 12-mile swim across four shipping lanes in the Port of Los Angeles, the western hemisphere’s busiest port. She considers her performance art works as part of her commitment to thinking through the linked issues of sustainability, consumption and waste management. The San Pedro-based artist is also a seasonal wild land fire fighter and dive boat captain.
