This week (July 14) with 41 kids and 5 teachers we made a 259 print herbarium of walnut ink monoprints of objects collected by the kids from around the site: leaves, pinecones, bottle caps, seeds, moss, etc. We organized the prints into a taxonomy including categories like: leaves that look like leaves, explosions, things from Alice’s Garden, pinecones, looks like fireworks, same, scattered and light, etc.
On Saturday, July 13, at 2 pm, at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, join me in observing, recording, and engaging the socioecology of the edge of our Boston urban heat island. Make a field guide for recording changes in the environment and learn about the resiliencies of local ecosystems. Using ink from plants, we’ll register the wunderkammer of the deCordova landscape.
