Garden 10: Events
Garden 10 series is a site-specific art installation with interactions. The components are photographs on textiles and aluminum, a video and live movements placed in a Santa Monica garden.
Instar is the original concept art video directed by Kasmer which highlights native plant life and natural cycles. It is realized with poetic movements performed by Michelle Lai, cinematography by Alicia Robbins and sound composition by Jennifer Ricciardi. Instar, was filmed entirely within the environs of the Theodore Payne Foundation in Sun Valley, CA.
The Garden 10 video was part of the LA Artists Respond to California Native Plant Gardens exhibition and The Theodore Payne Foundation Native Plant Garden Tour, April 2014.
Artworks can also be seen as stationary elements, exhibited on a clothing rack and as functional designs, coverings for the seats and tables. Additional constituents of the installation are prints on metal, over-scaled macro images of indigenous plant life, monumentally printed on aluminum panels.
