Jodi Hays will participate in a collaborative project (July-August 2010), Ripple Effect, at Scarritt Bennett Gallery. Click here for more information on the project.
I focused on the conceptual interests of trust and community for the Ripple project (ripples, affectation and connection). The work is titled “Desire Lines”. A small-scale sculpture of paper and wood, the work speaks to community, depicting a delicate neighborhood of paper houses. In landscape architecture “desire lines” are the paths and cut-off through grass that are made outside of the formal sidewalks. Desire Lines are the way in which humans want to pass, carving out shorter, more convenient distances between points. These paths seek to connect in less formal ways the architecture that holds community, people, families, individuals.
