'Abandoned' Site-specific installation.
Karen demonstrates how in nature even leaves can have a double life
Last Saturday, the kids toured the De la Cruz Collection and participated in Ms. Rifas' installation entitled 'Abandoned', her current site-specific, environmental art project. They picked their favorite leaves from the art laboratory which were used to add to the exhibition and to trace and embellish bamboo rainmakers. The rainmakers were assembled using various additional materials. By Karen Rifas
The wall in 'Abandoned' is an interactive piece in which the kids left their leaves behind for posterity
