Blake Garden

Blake Garden Artist Residency


I am currently working on my own project where I create an Atlas of regional and microclimates in the bay area. I create technical and cognitive maps using pen and ink, materials on the site, watercolor. Using Blake Garden for observation, analysis, and experimentation was ideal for this project because of the various scenes, materials, and histories.  I am interested in pairing the Atlas with physical experimentation of materials on site and I believe Blake Garden is an ideal place for such an investigation. Beyond highlighting the beauty of Blake Garden, I highlight the unseen and hidden aspects of the site such as the shifting land and the flow of water to and from the site.

Work is currently in progress. Presentation TBD in 2019.
