Ends in 40 days

Rachel Marks’ Bridge Project will create an immersive installation in which families will be invited to see and hear the story of the unnatural forest. With each step into this otherworldly plant life, objects seem familiar yet peculiar. A once recognizable structure, the book, becomes overthrown with cutting, ripping, painting, sanding, and stacking, transforming to create vegetation, vines growing and fungi popping out of windowed portholes. This site-specific installation of a peaceful forest will be completely constructed head-to-toe from donated used books. The viewers will be invited to walk down the paper trail and immerse themselves in the tranquil and calming environment. Naturae Liber will feature tree trunks created from old book covers, a waterfall created from hundreds of attached pages, live foliage hanging from the ceiling and delicate paper mushrooms growing out from the walls and windows.
