CO-CREATED WITH ARTIST MADDI LELLI http://maddilelli.com/
This project was a collaboration with the Ypsilanti Farmer's market. We were tasked with creating an illuminated sign that would attract customers from a distance. We built a sign with casters so it can be moved in and out of the building easily. in addition, we added LED lights that would illuminate in the dark to bring customers into the market.
Materials: paper, LED lights
This project was based upon my early childhood memories of walking through my grandmother's corn field in Bad Axe, Michigan. My memories of this field are vivid yet heavily influenced by my fantastical 7-year-old sensibilities. In order to convey these ideas, I made larger than life sized corn stalks void of color and added lights in order to add an element of wonderment. Below is a walk-through video of the illuminated corn field at night.
