Art installation- Down on the Farm!

I know my posts have been few lately, as I have recently moved to a new state and have been out of touch a bit. Hope to post a bit more now. Stay tuned.

A couple of friends of mine and I went to a very interesting and cool art installation designed to bring recognition to farms and food co-ops that are rapidly growing. ( pun intended, sort of) this was held at the Weavers Way farm in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pa.

An artist by the name of  Meei- Ling Ng put together an inspirational art installation using recycled farm materials such as chicken coop wiring, irrigation tubes etc. here is the link  to her show Multi-Media Art Installation by Meei-Ling Ng and Farm Festival.

Below are some pics I took on my old iphone (apologies on poor quality) it was cold and rainy and dark,  but it was still very cool to walk around and experience the art,  and the farm.

This farmer greeted us upon our entry to the farm. Everything was lit by “Jackson” the lighting designer with LED and solar lighting.

This is a Beekeeper, which brought attention to the plight of bees and their scary demise due to pesticides! Very sad. She piped in a documentary on this topic by an award-winning director ( sorry can’t remember the name) in the beekeepers head. Nice touch!

I can’t recall the name of this piece, but I do know it lit up the crops in a very cool looking way drawing attention to the field. Reminiscent of Christo‘s artwork http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christo_and_Jeanne-Claude

And this is what she called “The Balloon Chicken” I loved this piece!!

Great installation, and her other work included paintings and wood sculptures throughout the farm, like the cool woodpecker sculptures that became suddenly exposed by the solar light that was on a motion detector!! Nice touch by Jackson the lighting designer. Kudos !!

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
