What projects did you work on at SPACE?

This series of sun prints was created over a period of 6 days the artist spent in residence at Ryder Farms. They were made entirely using objects found while taking daily walks around the farm collecting things such as old farm tools and wild plants. Often incorporating her own body into the work, the artist created images that reflect her physical experience of being in Ryder Farm as well as her idea of the imaginative magical world that exists in the minds of the creative individuals who spend time there.
