Haven is a traveling, interactive piece that changes with each installation. The interior walls of the knitted hut are primed, and visitors are encouraged to write, draw, or otherwise share their perceptions of home. With installations in Columbus, OH and Oakland, CA, participants shared their ideas with others from across the country.
After conversations during a residency at Second Sight Studio in Columbus, OH, additional works were created with found objects, handspun wool, and recent newspaper headlines from the Franklinton neighborhood exploring social tensions and perceptions of the community.
Haven was made possible by a Professional Development Grant from the Surface Design Association.
