IGUANA Collaborative

Examining concepts of isolation and normalcy, this installation of 12 banners, photographs and videos began in January 2021 across 800 miles from Michigan to New York. Erskine + Stein used a pen-pal structure to investigate the restorative properties of walking and resting in nature during late quarantine. Contemplating human interconnectedness, they corresponded with short performative video postcards, layered digital images and minimal soundtracks. Wrapped in fabric, their body forms become a canvas for musing during a dark winter and hopeful spring. Vote: 70407.

Each image has a unique QR code to a corresponding short video on YouTube to 'bring the photo to life.' YouTube playlist: https://bit.ly/3DOjfEJ
