Badges for Brooke Valley - small verses my heart keeps singing

There are now three flagpoles in the main field at fieldwork, the aforementioned land art site outside of Perth, Ontario.  This one has the memory pavilion, and the boxes for the merit badges attached.

These are some photos from the opening, which was on Sunday June 20th.

It was so good to see many local residents come out – particularly as that was the audience I was primarily making it for.   As much as it was a piece about the landscape space of the field, it was also very much about presence in the local social space.  Give something back to both the landscape and community, you know? The badges are disseminating through that ecology now, and like seeds of a slow plant, will continue to do so over the summer.   Thank you everyone for coming!

It is there until Labour day.  Directions can be found at the fieldwork site.
