Something in the Water goes to Aashe!

Our beautiful reef of crocheted plastic bags has made another public appearance!

See what Wendy had to say about it in her most recent blog post:

October 9 -11, 2011 our reef was on view for 2,000 participants at Aashe, an international sustainability in higher education conference, to check out. This was the first year that the conference included art and our project was one of only two pieces included. People were very curious and interested in the materials, ideas, and participants. I showed visitors how to crochet plastic bags and quite a few gave it a try. One insightful person remarked on how the piece ‘draws one in as a kind of Dr. Suessical landscape, then once one’s attention is captured the dark reality of the eco-underpinnings hit even harder…’

Wendy is also looking for managers who would like to head up the creation of new reefs in different parts of the world. If you or someone you know is interested in starting a new reef to show in a gallery, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with her!

Be sure to visit her blog for more information and to see more pictures.
