This idea was directly generated from Matthias Merkel Hess' posting on EcoArtBlog, "Getting Dirty at the Hammer." In it he mentions that the panel discussion (featuring Steve Badgett/SimpArch, Amy Franceschini/Futurefarmers and Nance Klehm) discussed the role of the gallery for artists who work in communities on a project basis. Amy Franceschini stated something about (in Matthias' words) "Franceschini said the gallery can be used as a testing ground and that failure is possible without hurting anyone."
Last night I was trying to figure out how on earth I would store the 100+ plots for the "Seeding the City. Along the walls would be images of the plots in place. I can even create a little string based network of the plot spaces in the gallery. I LOVE THIS IDEA! So now I have to either find a gallery that would be up for this for the entire 3-5 month project timeline (at least it is summer!) or get a Swing Space from LMCC. If you have a gallery & are interested, be sure to contact me!
