Material and Applications Applications

So every couple months in LA a art group called Material and Applications changes a bit of land they own to anything they want. Think of instant architecture. Apparentl they need help if your down apply to there site they already started. but I'm sure they always need help

From Materials and Applications

"We plan to kick off the next M&A project this weekend at the build site, the Barnsdall Art Park in Los Feliz/East Hollywood and we are inviting the public. We will spend both Saturday and Sunday (01/10 & 01/11) developing an installation for the outdoor entryway to the gallery. The goal for our first meeting will be to brainstorm possible designs for the structure and build a prototype.
So far our starting parameter is the use of bamboo as a tensioning element. What is left to be decided is the design and medium to connect the bamboo. The overall goal is to design modular units to ultimately grow the structure.

The Barnsdall opening reception is January 31st, and we need to have a presentable, if not completed, installation in place by the end of the day on January 23rd. The next two weekends promise to be action packed. Who are we looking for...?
1. Those who see toothpicks and think about more than dental hygiene

2. Dreamers who like to get their hands dirty

3. Everybody who couldn't sit still in class

In addition to all the building fun, this weekend will be a great way to get to know the park with great views and Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock house. We hope to see you there.
Please RSVP if you plan to come -- we will be on site from 12pm until 5pm each day. Everyone is welcome, even if you can only make it for part of the day.
This is part of the show : Actions, Conversations, and Intersections at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90027; curated by Edith Abeyta and Michael Lewis Miller
