When Life Gives You Weeds, Make Window Panels

A plethora of perfectly straight, woody plants were found on the bluffs of Lake Michigan. In a later stage, the sticks’ natural color was changed by exposure to a bleach solution in varying durations.
A slotted frame proved to be a good way to hold the sticks in place. The parallel orientation and rigid form created opportunities for overlapping layers and changeable densities.

The final panel features a range of densities and patterns. The viewing experience differs as the observer approaches the panel.
