field trip

Yesterday our weaving class headed to Van Dusen to meet Nicole Dextras, the creator of the Little Green Dress Projekt which is part of a larger curated body of work at the garden called Earth Art. It was interesting to see how she talked about the project and how she filtered comments from the public. Being outside the gallery atmosphere, the works are quite tactile and accessible and the artist is expected to discuss them more often I think. It seemed like the kind of approach a very confident, experienced artist could take. It was also interesting to note that the art itself is only a piece of the work. Selling rights to photographs and looking into publishing will also create further value from the experience. She is planning to leave them up into October if you want to check them out.
