When artist Weidon Yang and I were preparing for the Open House installation of our interactive project "Sharing" (with a beating heart that you could hold in your hand), we solicited the help of Djerassi staff member Wade Watkins to help us make the base for the piece.
I had found an oak log by the side of the path not far from the Artist Barn. We wanted to make a wooden stump (about 18” high), that was hollowed out inside – to hide out equipment. And then have a 2” thick slice of the log for the top.Wade expertly wielded his chain saw and cut all parts to perfection – even thinking through details we had not yet considered!
It was such a pleasure to work with Wade and all the other staff members at Djerassi. Such care!! Thank you!
