We Are a Crowd of Others, 2016

In collaboration with Gail Grinnell & Eric John Olson

Spun polyester

We Are a Crowd of Others was an expansive, textile-based installation by artists Gail Grinnell, Sam Wildman, and Eric John Olson. Their work featured hanging components made from hundreds of yards of spun material that had been drawn on, dyed, cut, and incorporated into the architecture of the building. We Are a Crowd of Others also included a series of public meals, performances, lectures, and re-enactments which investigated the language and resonance of ordinary acts. The public was invited to visit and observe the process as it unfolds, as well as participate in the programs happening in and around the installation from September, 2016 through January, 2017.
