thirty days of ephemeral art

At the very beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we had planned to be on a multi-month long road trip through Baja Mexico, the United States and Canada. Since we live full time in our van, when the shelter in place orders hit California, we were a little confused on what to do since we are technically at home wherever we park. Not knowing how long this was all going to last, we decided to stay stateside hiding out in the national forests and only go to town to resupply. That turned into six weeks of time out in nature and resulted in 30 ephemeral installations in clay. The plan was to connect to each place and respond to it with simple but engaging forms in clay. And of course, nothing was left behind or damaged in the process.
