Smoke Farm Residency

I've been named the first full-year artist in residence for the Rubicon Foundation/Smoke Farm.  The Smoke Farm is a couple hundred acres of farmland that is reverting and being restoring to something more like its western Washington rainforest origins (it was previously owned and operated by the Smoke family).  The land is currently used for artistic, educational and intellectual activities.  I will be making art about the land and what I find there as I explore and map the terrain over the next year.  I will also be working with the foundations educational programs to work with regional school children on projects at the farm. 
I am blogging my time at the smoke farm.
