Wallflowers Scrim National Design triennial For The Cooper-Hewitt

New York, NY 

Fabrication of two large scale scrims using re-appropriated landscape materials for the Cooper Hewitt 2007 National Design Triennial Design Life Now.

For the Cooper Hewitt 2007 National Design Triennial Design Life Now, Alison Duncan fabricated two large scale scrims with a small team while working with Ken Smith Landscape Architect. Re-appropriating landscape materials, such as colored synthetic erosion control mat and artificial flowers, Wallflowers were crafted and attached to a backdrop of orange construction fence panels based on underlying selected grid points. Smith’s work speaks to simulated nature. Suggestive of large-scale garden latticework, the scrims were draped over the façade over the Cooper-Hewitt and also exhibited at The Houston Contemporary Art Museum in 2008.
