Hive of Activity

The field house is buzzing with activity and it is not just the bees in our garden. This summer we are hosting another class from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Together we are creating a series of sculptures for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. The theme of the work is Micro Patterns of Nature. We are transforming recycled plastic shopping bags into fused plastic material that will serve as the main fabric for the sculptures. The structure will be made from bamboo. When the festival is over, the sculptures will be disassembled and all of the material will be repurposed. Check out the Micro Patterns site to learn more about the project and all the artists involved.
