• Sabal palm and stiltgrass: MFA Thesis - Sculpture

      Stowe, John A. (2021-05)
      As we build new communities and heal old ones, we are presented with opportunities to collaborate with existing ecosystems. How can infrastructure be modified to promote resilient ecological communities that support each other and the overall biodiversity of the spaces we inhabit? Billboard Fields, Dumpster Agriculture, and Lap Siding are all examples of ways we can heal the socio-ecological disturbances that generally support humans but interrupt the ecology of the surrounding area. Lap Siding embraces vernacular architecture as a point of entry into both new and historically old material relationships with the land we build our homes on.
