Environmental Interventions at Fort Worden


Facilitated by Seattle-based installation artist, Mandy Greer, a
group of high school artists from around Washington state are
investigating the topics of eco art, collaboration,
environmental installation, Craftivism, the DIY craft movement, and
temporary public art.

Mandy has put together an outstanding blog documenting the work of these eco artists, called "Environmental Interventions."

Part of Centrum's Summer High School Arts Camp, the artists are forming small collectives, learning a variety of fiber-based
techniques grounded in contemporary art practices, and creating a series
of Environmental Installations on the wilderness grounds of Fort Worden
State Park.

Mandy writes:

"Once we all got on a roll, much of our time is spent generating elements
of the artists’ installations.  The groups have each appointed
a facilitator, not necessarily a group leader, but someone who keeps
them on track, makes punch lists, takes notes, makes sketches and meets
with me about their progress.  These artists are so self-motivated, and a
vibrant group to work with!"

We encourage you to follow their work during the week at http://envinstallation.wordpress.com/.
