On An Overgrown Path, Stevenson University, Stevenson, Maryland
"On an Overgrown Path" is the title of a piano composition by Leon Janacek composed between 1901-1911. After hearing a performance I thought it would use it for the project at Stevenson.
Over 100 shoes traverse the gallery on white-painted cardboard boxes textured with joint compound, coffee grounds, pine needles and kosher salt. Hanging on the walls are 2"x2" ink wash studies, as if from the overgrown path one could see a landscape in the distance.
In the end, the path reminded me of the Appian Way, an old Roman road.
