"Department of Forestry" was a project of the Civic Studio on
Alabama Street in Grand Rapids. The project was a collaboration with
Chicago artist Dan Peterman. Huge piles of wood chips from trees in
Grand Rapids were formed inside and outside the space and neighborhood
in recreational and functional configurations. The project highlighted
the flexibility of socially mediated structuring of hard and soft
materials in public space.
