2012, Straw bales, steel, wire
Approx. 200 feet (30 meters)
An installation of 24 straw bales frozen in stop motion time. Designed for installation on an organic farm I set two parameters, like most things on a farm the piece must be temporary and all of the materials used had to be beneficial to the farm. When the piece is disassembled the organic straw bales will be scattered about the farm as mulch and the steel structure (off-the-shelf steel fence posts) will be used as tomato trellis for years to come.
This project was a success only with the help of numerous friends, backers and crowd funding through Kickstarter. I am grateful to all. See the site at the link below.
