Edward Morris works with photography, video, writing, and installation. He is Professor of Practice in the Department of Transmedia at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, and co-director of the Canary Lab. He works in collaboration with his wife Susannah Sayler as Sayler/Morris. In 2006 Sayler/Morris co-founded the Canary Project, a collaborative that produces visual media and artworks that deepen public understanding of climate change and other ecological issues. In 2015 Sayler/Morris were awarded the 8th annual David Brower Center: Art/Act Award, and in 2014 they were awarded the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. In 2008-09 they were Loeb Fellows at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
