Mater Matrix Mother and Medium

Tommorrow night is the culmination of a project by Seattle based Mandy Greer. Mandy is an artists work I have admired for years but it just doesn't fit in our pop art gallery but that's ok as I get to go other places to see her amazing work. Matthew, my hubbie, and I went to see the installation the other day and it was lovely and I think i'll try to sneek out of the gallery early tommorrow to go see the preformance.

Below is from mandy's site about the project...

Mater Matrix Mother and Medium is a process-based temporary public art installation by Seattle-based installation artist Mandy Greer (that’s me).

This new work is commissioned by Seattle Public Utilities 1% for Art Funds, and administered by Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, as a way to celebrate and interpret the splendor of Seattle’s urban creeks and encourage community involvement in the stewardship of our essential watersheds.

The River of Mater Matrix Mother and Medium will be created on site at Camp Long, as I integrate all the fiber parts created over these many months into one form based on the topography and structure of the trees. The river will remain in the trees until July 31st, 2009, with the potential for longer to be determined later.

Mater Matrix Mother and Medium will culminate with a site-specific performance by Seattle-based and internationally-recognized choreographer and dancer Zoe Scofield. Come join in this one-time experience on July 16th, 2009 at 6:30 pm at the pond at Camp Long in West Seattle, 5200 35th Ave. SW.
