Paint Collection Platforms/Millay Colony Project
Found material, cardboard, sticks, paint, drafting table
In Austerlitz, NY, the location of the Millay Colony and Edna St Vincent Millay's Steepletop Estate, the forested environment is mountainous and feels remote, however the existence of human responses to the topography were almost always evident, usually in relationship to the mountain streams running through the region. Responding in my studio, paint collection platforms were designed to capture paint directed down a series of conduits reimagine's the landscape's water table as a large-scale 3 dimensional drawing. This video, graciously shot by my fellow residents at the Colony, tracks the paint is it courses through the handmade structure.
