pollinator picnic: residency
Pollinator Picnic Residency
Pollinator Picnic Residency as an interactive public process for the duration of "Interludes" Art in the Park 2019. The residency is a temporary artist in residence which creates mason bee houses
to attract pollinator populations and activated the public space to engage visitors to Elm Park and the mobile pollinator unit. Based on the islands in the Elm Mere Ponds, I will make weekly trips to the park to complete a choreographed score to navigate the
mere pond by watercraft.
During this routine, I will collect water for Transplants, gather litter to create mason bee houses, and dredge muddy areas of the pond to create sculptural mud pies.
The residency was documented on "Worcester By Bike" though a chance encounter with Worcester Telegram and Gazette writer Scott Foskett.
