Sandbox / Washington College 2016
Collaboration with Howard McCoy
As part of its interdisciplinary program fostering collaboration between the creative arts and sciences, Washington College’s Sandbox Initiative invited us to collaborate with ecologist Joan Maloof of the Old Growth Forest Network. Borrowing its title from a Native American name for trees, our project, “The Standing People,” explored the close affinity humans have with trees. It included site-specific installations on the College’s main campus, its Stepne Manor property and the Sandbox Gallery, a talk and interactive event led by Dr. Maloof, and a performance by dancer Sandra Kammann.
