January 18 – March 1, 2014
Artist Katya Khan will invite public to join her at Side Street Projects’ mobile headquarters to play and interact with each other while building an outdoor installation through a series of workshops. The project will create a space where children, teenagers and those young at heart could play, where different generations will interact with each other and be exposed to natural environment in an active way. This mini-landscape will consist of five elements: labyrinth, wild grasses plantation, mounds, adobe huts and “loose parts” area.
The project titled Sculpting Social Landscapes addresses people’s alienation from outdoors, broken linkage in inter-generational communication, and a deficit of open space in this neighborhood in particular.
This project is made possible through a grant from the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission
and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division and an ARC grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation.
