Indy Island, 2009

“Indy Island”, commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art for their “100 Acres” Art and Nature Park, is a fully inhabitable experimental living structure that examines the daily needs of contemporary human beings. The island is being occupied over the course of four summers by commissioned “residents” who adapt and modify it’s structure according to their individual needs, while also serving as “hosts” in order to facilitate public viewing of the work. 

Read about Inaugural island residents Jessica Dunn and Michael Runge who lived on the structure over the summer of 2010 and who created a project called “Give and Take”   Or 2011 resident Katherine Ball whos blog titled “No Swimming” details her construction of mycofilters from hemp, wood chips, and mushroom mycelium, which were placed in the lake in an attempt to lower E.coli levels in the water.
