In doing some research, I’ve come across some interesting ways of working with grass and had to share.
I hadn’t heard of artist Tomas Saraceno until doing this search, but have become completely smitten by his work. Here are his Floating balloons of grass from the “Lighter than Air” exhibition at Walker Art Center.
This next image also of Saraceno’s doesn’t involve grass but is just too gorgeous not to share:
Keep off the grass! was an undulating suspended landscape that was installed in the Southern California Institute of Architecture’s school gallery for 8 weeks.
Artists Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey grew grass on vertical surfaces including a cathedral and mausoleum.
as well as portraiture.
I also came across some grass lamps.

I have had this New House: urban/suburban project brewing for a while now. I started it while F was still napping in the Ergo on my back.

We’ve finally gotten to a point where F naps in the family bed, so my work time has gotten a little more productive- I can move my body a bit more freely now anyhow. I do have to admit, at times I miss having my little sleeping muse right over my shoulder.

Today a solo exhibition of my work entitled Real-e opens at the McArthur Graduate Library at Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, Florida.
Here is a peak at what is up there:
