Flotsam Weirs 2: Nikki Gardner & Todd Lynch

The Flotsam Weirs 2 installation explores overlaid ecological communities and site/non-site dynamics. It integrates film projection from the original weirs installation next to the Mill River that was inspired by social geography and ecology with materials from the landscape found in Williamsburg woven into a weir (a kind of fence). As a process piece, representative of ecological dynamics, visitors can add their “story” to the piece with extra material used to construct the weirs. With each addition, the piece evolves to reflect the ecology fostered by the site and the community.

On view at Meekins Library in Williamsburg August 28–October 19, 2015
