Place, partnerships, and pathways: Weaving mosaics and architecture in an Irish forest
March 17 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Rachel Sager, Julie Sperling, Meghan Walsh, Deb Englebaugh and Lee-Ann Taylor
Five mosaicists, one librarian, a gaggle of architecture students and some master masons walk into an Irish forest… What unfolds next is a singular experience where architecture and mosaic evolve in an inseparable and parallel way to create a sacred space in just nine days. Through collaborative storytelling accompanied by high-quality photos, let this dynamic team of mosaicists tell you about the project’s origins, the shared mosaic language they spontaneously created, the constant dialogue between the structure and the art, and the inevitable bumps, setbacks, and surprises along the way. With a frank discussion of what worked and what didn’t, you’ll benefit from their lessons learned (and there were plenty!) and be able to apply them to your own work. An in situ mosaic undertaking like no other in terms of vision and process, the story behind the Fishers of Men Spirit of Place installation in Cong, Ireland, will inspire you and challenge your assumptions of what is possible with collaborative and intuitive mosaic. There will be time at the end for audience members to ask questions.
