I am creating a new site-specific video installation for Mountain Time Arts' exhibition, UPSTREAM running June 16-30, 2017 and on view at various locations in downtown, Bozeman. My project, patchwork, will be on display at Main Street Quilting Co. It is inspired by the history of water usage in the Gallatin Valley and uses quilt block patterns as the vehicle to "patch" together the textures and colors of water sites of the area.
UPSTREAM June 16-30, 2017
Main Street Window Exhibits by Regional Artists Tours of Bozeman Creek
Water has many beautiful and essential forms that change with the seasons. Upstream looks at spring melt and explores the question of, “Whats in a drop of water?”. Mountain Time Arts commissioned several regional artists and designers to create installations in storefront windows on Main Street in downtown Bozeman. Each artist collaborated with a conservationist or scientist; the original storefront artworks will respond to water themes in surprising ways. The Upstream installations promise to inspire the pedestrians who travel Main Street to think about their relationship to water, their use, and conservation of it. What is their history with water? Tours of Bozeman Creek will take place daily during the event.
