phoebe is after my own heart by "producing large-scale installations: assemblages of garbage, detritus, cardboard, scrap wood, and, more recently, organic matter such as sod or plants."

i am a TEXTURE addict! YES! and i want to inhabit the spaces she creates...for a few days at least.

read more about her involvement in avant-guardians: "Contemporary artists who are engaging ecology in their choices of theme, practice, medium, and display."

(further appreciation: i watched the npr american masters documentary on charles and ray eames last night...reminded me of sitting in a dark auditorium classroom at the u of mn embarking on my journey with design.)
