Barn Quilt #1 (Art Farm)

found wood, nails, spray paint
4'x4'
2015

Permanently installed on the facade of a studio building at the artist residency site, Art Farm Nebraska. The object serves as an ideogrammatic document indicating five participatory elements directly related to our experience as residents of the property. In our constructed mythology of the space, each element asserts a hybrid existence, both toxic and healing.

Clockwise, from top left: ambrosia trifeda (Giant Ragweed), water, solidago (Goldenrod), heat, and smoke
