D. Graham Burnett, Jeff Dolven, Sal Randolph, David Richardson, Leonard Nalenz and many other indiscreet associates of The Order of the Third Bird will continue their investigations into experimental protocols of Practical Aesthesis and methods of Sustained Attention.
Petra Lange Berndt, Joanna Ebenstein, Robert Marbury, James Prosek and others work together gazing into the history of taxidermy. We will discuss how and where methods of taxidermy are employed in art, natural history, museums, contemporary art and local applications.
Paul Bartow, Cameron Klavsen, J. Morgan Puett and local artisans collaborate to build a small springhouse larder outbuilding: a vernacular inspired structure that will utilize solar energy, onsite spring, and locally sourced building material. This design-build project will harness the attributes of sun, water, and earth; an exercise in adaptive use/reuse involving off-the-shelf technologies coupled with emergent and low-tech methodologies.
J. Morgan Puett, Athena Kokoronis with artists, local naturalists, gardeners, botanists, beekeepers and other contributing artists will workshop around topics including beekeeping, collecting, pressing, tincturing, planting, mycoremediation, soil biology – wildcrafting; while focusing on the redesign and dynamic transformation of the Mildred Garden and the Radical Apiary, both adjacent to the Mildred’s Lane TransHistorical Society and Museum.
