It looks like mother nature will be welcoming guests to my Garden Intervention at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art under sunny skies this Wednesday! Come roll the giant dice of emotions, then map out your emotional triggers on my giant weaving. Come find me, I will be near the pond, kept company by two majestic trees and a sculpture by Gary Haven Smith. Using lengths of colored yarn you can connect a continent of emotion to sometimes numerous states of emotion. It depends on what makes you angry. Or what gives you enjoyment? Seal away unwanted emotions in test tubes and connect them to the 3D map, where topography represents moods and actions are cities. Emotions have several states, and vary in intensity, and so will the length of your yarn and participation! For example, you can be mildly annoyed and highly annoyed, but you can’t be slightly furious! My intervention will engage audiences of all ages from 0-99 while helping us contemplate the fluidity of our emotions in a playful setting. You are also welcome to help me weave yellow materials into the continent of enjoyment! I hope to see you on Wednesday!
