Sam's short doc. film about my Queens Botanical Garden Project

In September and October of 2010 I did an installation project at the Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing, NY. The project was funded by a grant through the Queens Community Art Fund- facilitated by the Queens Council on the Arts. My project, Art: From the Garden to the Walls, included 3 installation sculptures formed on wire armatures and a window screen base layer and then "dressed" with discarded or recovered materials from the garden. I held community workshops in which garden goers helped make patches of "fabric" out of the natural materials. I then added those patches to the garment that I designed. This video tracks the process of the project.
