tumbleweed / October 3 - 16, 2014
tumbleweed is a new project that investigates the idea of source material and the dispersal of information within the context of a creative practice. Originally developed as a lecture for Heidi Schwegler's MFA Seminar in the AC+D program in Portland, tumbleweed is a mapping of residue, influence, and research.
