Fortress Project at the Hatchery, Badger Creek, California

From November 6 - 8, 2015, Amoibe, a project initially installed in Rotterdam in 2009 was installed as part of Fortress at the Hatchery in Badger Creek, California.  A few changes were made since its initial installation.  Here are a few photos of our repurposed temporary dog shelters, embellished and reconfigured into Amoibe.

2015 Farm Project at Saunder's Farm - Visitors of the 4 legged variety and not cows

Hard to resist posting this photo of collaborator, Laura Ten Eyck and our guest artist Ted McGurn at Saunder's Farm, with some visitors on horseback. Cows are a regular presence here, but horses you don't see every day!

Opening of The 2015 Farm Project September 6, 2015

During the events, we will be bringing a ladder for viewers to access 
the crow's nest and if they feel inclined, play the drums.  We recorded 
various viewers playing, including this man, a Garrison local, who lives 
down the road from Saunder's Farm.

Drum Set Crow's Nest is installed!!

Drum Set is finally installed after two weekends of suffering in the hot humid weather.  There were some issues with the extreme heat causing the drums to melt.  We decided to wait until the heat and humidity subsided a bit before leaving the drum kit to  mercy of the elements.  Also there was the problem of where to install the flag.  This seemed to be a good solution - out of the way of the cows and the visitor/drummer.

Installing Drum Set Crows Nest - August 16th, 2015

Day 1 and 2 of installing Drum Set were brutal due to the 90 +  (33+ Celsius) degree heat.  Ted McGurn, our guest artist on this project is setting up the Crow's Nest.  The final piece of the installation has been scheduled for Saturday August 29th, 2015.
