Picnic

This work is enacted by a small group when they join me on a picnic amongst the infrastructure.  We carry ceramic vessels of food nestled in portable sacks as we pass through train yards, under highways, through post-industrial yards, and along downtown sidewalks.  The group’s discussion wanders through peoples knowledge or experience of this space and discussions about foraging.  The porcelain implements have been created through a process of forming clay over pipes, storm water drains, parts of old bridges, train tracks and fire hydrants—objects in this urban environment that are part of the city’s movement infrastructure.
