Green creates complex installations, which present and examine ideas, histories, cultural artifacts, and her own photographs and films, in environments that invite viewers to participate as producers of meaning. In her work, she exposes hidden connections in order to provoke new ways of thinking. In Import/Export Funk Office, she investigates the transcultural flow of hip-hop music between New York, Los Angeles, and Germany. Green is also an educator who has served as Dean of Graduate Studies at the San Francisco Art Institute and Director of the MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology.
