Hambidge, Colony Square
This installation (and subsequent photograph) was created for the Hambidge Center for the Arts and Sciences HIVE Collective at Colony Square in midtown Atlanta. Passage was built from the ground up in an old Houlihan's restaurant space at the corner of 15th and Peachtree Streets and took about two months to complete. The bark on the wainscoting was collected from downed trees at my neighborhood park and stained dark to look charred. Collected from dried and stained poison ivy vines run over the walls. The wallpaper was hand-stenciled. The size of the installation was approximately 12x12x10 feet. Each of the 80 red-winged black birds was made from paper by hand. This image was captured with a vintage 8x10 camera and film. The Scene opened with three live public performances.
