Creating a social practice centers on creating an atmosphere where the community feels comfortable participating with the project. Most artworks are considered "hands-off," but through audience driven participation and discussion, a deeper understanding of the work is possible. Artist Maryann Worrell will discuss her series of participatory works titled Crisis Farm. This work takes a critical view of environmental issues, strives to start a conversation and enact change, by breaking down the structure of the average garden to its fundamental elements of seed, soil and water. The sculptural installation expresses the limitations of these resources in a multi-layered system and invites the viewer to explore the subject in an interactive manner, fostering bigger questions about the future of food and our part in it.
