UN/MAKING CONCRETE: COMPOSTING FOR THE COMMONS was an interactive performance on October 18, 2022, in which I worked with Union Gallery to  extend the walls of the gallery and prepare the new Union Gallery Garden for its inaugural artist intervention in the spring of 2023.To create rich and lively soil for the May 2023 planting of my handwritten thesis on seed paper, we invited students, faculty and the larger community to contribute their food scraps from breakfast and lunch. Upon adding food waste to the deficient soil of the ground level garden, we then spread out the nutrient rich matter combined with paper mulch from past exams, essays, proposals and applications, before putting the garden to bed for the winter. Scroll down below and register for my newsletter if you would like to witness the spring planting of my thesis paper.
