Barn Razing

Wtih Katie Hargrave

Drawing on the cultural history of communal labor and working in the tradition sewing circles, harvest days, shared grindstones, and, of course, barn raising, university community members participated in all aspects of the project, from installation through the redistribution of the wood. For the duration of the month long exhibition, students were invited to use the platform in way they chose. The project activated an under-utilized space to become a meeting space, a lounge, a practice room, and so forth. In the end, community members dreamed up new diverse uses for the material: from hoop house frames, to tree houses, panels for paintings, and book shelves.
