House Plant

“When she read my name Weeping Willow out loud, she said she felt sad, too.”

Each Other’s Medicine.

Each Other’s Medicine  is an interactive story-installation of a retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone. This story is hand embroidered across and told by Weeping Willow, White Poplar, and Pomegranate, three plants that grew in the garden of the ancient Greek Underworld. The rhizomatic and nonlinear nature of plants is reflected in their storytelling; direct routes are rare. They want you to know about their friend, Persephone, and what happened when they met her.

In the spirit of the oral storytelling tradition of Greek myths, Each Other’s Medicine will close with a collaborative public reading of the story, led by Cicelia Ross-Gotta, at Public Space One June 26th at 4:00 pm.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
