Description: During the Storm Road installation, visitors brought picnics to this beautiful location in central New York to watch, listen, and draw. Over the course of the second day, individuals made drawings of the installation. Each person found their own way to understand the architecture, sheets of paper, and landscap. The drawings contributed to documenting the provisional work and the individual perceptions of the materials. Puzzle scrambler’s with Brummund’s drawing of the barn were distributed prior to the event to invite visitors to the open drawing workshop.
