Artists in Action: Hands on Art & Education with the Ghost Net Landscape Project
Artist Emily Miller, will facilitate the Ghost Net Landscape Project, an interactive art installation and performance, in which she will collaborate with the PCC community to transform piles of “ghost net” fishing rope waste into sculptural, tactile basket forms and other collaborative artworks.
Artist and PCC Student, Shelby Silver will display her large scale interactive art installation, We’ve Made Our Bed, which offers to shift hard notions about our oceans. Made from the remnants of 1,000 pounds of reclaimed marine rope and ghost net outside of Building 5. Feel free to climb inside, rest your head and dream of new and wonderful solutions!
