Ebb and Flow II is on View Through June 2018, at Brown University's Granoff Center for Creative Arts
Ebb and Flow II is a collaborative installation by artists May Babcock and Megan Singleton inspired by the waterways and flora of the Narragansett Bay. Dendritic patterns found in watershed maps and plant forms are interpreted using invasive plants that have been collected locally and transformed into handmade paper pulp.
The large-scale wall installation includes the taxonomy and vector drawings of the vegetation. The laser cut drawings are made from the paper fiber corresponding to the plant each depicts.
Part of the Brown Arts Initiative, Ebb and Flow II is on view August 2017 through June 2018 in the upper lobby of Brown University's Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, 154 Angell Street, Providence RI.
Solo Exhibition at Machines with Magnets in January 2018
A new installation, Ebb and Flow V, will be at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, RI this winter. Using linen, cotton, and local non-native plant species as fiber for handmade paper pulp, this sculptural work is a response to the nearby Blackstone River watershed, its industrial textile history, and current status. The installation also includes a cyanotype taxonomy of sediment, fiber, and collected materials. Dates and more details coming soon!
