The installation, a 527 square foot rock garden, expands on the theme of transformation present across Vanha’s body of work. The field of stone suggests construction debris of past infrastructure, including the now-dismantled Embarcadero Freeway.
This project is a continued investigation into the nature of unfolding, a process whereby materials, space, light and gesture alter the work over time. A meditative aspect exists in the ritual practice of labor by Vanha who visits the garden daily to maintain the grounds.
This project is a community effort and acknowledges the generosity of its donors.
