|Pyramid Atlantic Art Center and Anacostia Trails Heritage Area are pleased to welcome their first Connecting Heritage Fellow, Jacklyn Brickman, in bringing her w|edge folk:land Survey Project to the new Bladensburg Waterfront Park this Saturday, November 19 at 2pm.
w|edge folk:land Survey Project, is a multifaceted mobile art installation designed to incite social engagement acting on the premise that the health of our land is a direct reflection of we folk who inhabit it. Inspired by the historical American tent style wedge and “edge” which indicates the outside limit of an area. Folk refers to participants and that the project facilitator is a self taught surveyist. The goal of “w|edge” is to provoke dialogue about history, environmental and social interest concerning sustainability using hand-made and found tools, survey and art making methods through written surveys regarding the participants’ relationships with the survey area and that of their home. Participants assist in an artful land survey by obtaining data using measurements, observations and tests including sound, soil, water and light, which are processed into drawings on site.
Look for the white w|edge tent and join in with your community by surveying the area together! Survey will last about 1.5 - 2 hours, but participants may join in at any time.
