Shrine for Old Pens

Finally finished editing my documentation for this project. Here are the final images. Process photos coming soon!

I’m super happy with how this turned out. As you’ll see soon, the project changed a lot at the last minute.

This project will be on view at Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery as part of the Bronx Calling: The Second AIM Biennial through September 8th. It is supported in part by Project Vortex.

Understory

Squat down and look under the tables in the Wave Hill greenhouses.¬†You can’t always tell what’s intentional and what’s unintentional; I’m sure there’s a little of each. If these greenhouses are the luxurious penthouses of vegetable life, these would be the squatter plants.

Weaving

This weekend is Wave Hill‘s “Festival Of Grasses”, and I’ll be leading a weaving workshop for their Family Art Project. I’d like to do some combination of a traditional dwelling design made from grass, with non-traditional materials worked into the grass. Kids will be making small patches in a separate room, which they’ll have the option of attaching to the structure. Here are a few things I’ve been looking at:
