PERFORMANCE ART & EVENTS
Video and discussion with work by David Ian Bellows/Griess, Nina Isabelle and Elizabeth Lamb.

Gutter Hangers is an experiment in challenging failure as two people attempt to install a sloped structural diversion system designed to waste a natural resource by directing it away from an existing habitat while simultaneously attempting to build sustainable community relationships through offering grilled mushrooms to any well-meaning participatory onlookers and volunteer spectators who try to help.
(ps: we never hung the gutters)
