The Soft Planting System-Gretchen Hooker

The planters in Gretchen Hooker’s Soft Planting System are made of technical fabrics that allow them to be easily disassembled or moved. The system permits city dwellers to grow their own food regardless of whether or not they have a yard.

The Soft Planting System is one of the RISD student projects featured in Partly Sunny@St. George's.

The Recycled Rover - Danny Kim

Approximately 25% of all the energy a car uses over its lifetime is used in production. Danny Kim preserved the embodied energy in his Recycled Rover by rebuilding a worn out truck and machining its worn out parts for other uses. The low weight of the vehicle makes its bio-diesel engine that much more efficient.

The Recycled Rover is one of the RISD student projects that is featured at Partly Sunny @ St. George's.

Over the next few weeks we'll profile some of the student projects here on the blog.

Thanks to Lisa Hansel - Director of the Hunter Gallery, Pat Moss - Dean of Academic Affairs, and Bret Barker from RISD.

Dialog:Denver closes

Dialog:Denver, the show of Dialog:City and Denver-based artists at the Robischon Gallery came down today.

I hadn't seem this review while we were in Colorado but the Denver Post described the show this way:

“The ambitious show, titled ‘Dialog:Denver,’ is the latest in a recent string of edgy, international-level offerings that have established a new high-water mark for the Robischon Gallery and significantly enhanced its standing locally and in the broader art world.”

The show was great fun. Thanks to Jim & Jennifer and all the folks at the Gallery for putting it on.
