Jennifer Van Winkle was
a collaboration with
Manual High School and
Richwoods High School
students in Peoria,
Illinois, USA.

Thousands of plastic
bottles, jute, black
thread and PVC pipe
were used to create this
"village" in a 1,200
square foot warehouse.
ImPartially Read, Partially Processed & Partly Digested
ImPartially Read, Partially Processed & Partly Digested was
created as a collaboration between students, faculty, staff
and the community at the Campus Gate Art Gallery at
Young Harris College in Young Harris, Georgia, USA.

This large-scale labyrinth was constructed from recycled
cardboard and paper, aluminum rivets, staples, painter's
tape, jute and screws. The labyrinth's walls were seven to
ten feet high. The art filled the entire 1,500 square foot
space of the gallery. At the end of the project, all materials
were recycled.
PEEK was a walk-in, site-specific installation on the grounds of the Hambidge Center in Georgia, USA. The installation
celebrated Hambidge's Annual Summer Festival on July 18th, 2009. The design symbolized the essence of the artist's processâ
€”the importance of the looking that sometimes involves looking outside one's self in order to see within.   PEEK was made
with natural materials from the Hambidge property and highlighted weaving as related to the legacy of Mary Hambidge.
