Building Blocks

Sligo, Ireland, March 2012

Straw, Chicken wire

When I first visited the countryside surrounding the farm in Ireland, I was impressed by the beautiful landscape, and found the bales of straw situated in the fields resemble dynamic land art.  I was curious about how these bales were made as they were all the same exact shape and size, and later discovered they were made by a machine.  I set out to make by hand a series of bales in shapes that people had never seen before.
