The Quabbin Projects
Dawson and I at the Quabbin Reservoir Visitor Center, in Ware, Massachusetts. The Quabbin Reservoir was created in the early 20th century as a source of drinking water for the city of Boston. Four towns were flooded after 2,ooo individuals were displaced in order for this to happen.
Two collaborative assemblages that Dawson and I created for Interface Quabbin, a local community art exhibit held in nearby New Salem, Massachusetts. Both works were made from found and organic objects, including Quabbin Reservoir water and the artists' hair.
