A residency at Button Bay state park in Vergennes, creating a piece for Of Land & Local. Land(e)scape (play with the language below) is made from some of the beautiful, ordinary and strange plastics I have been collecting.

Over two weekends, I invited help forming the piece through making a part, a suggestion, observation, poem etc. with all ages.
