the wake of the awoke – installation art in Loveland Colorado

abbie powers, installation artist, suspended art 2013

I had the absolute honor of creating a collaborative installation art piece with two amazing artists here in Loveland, Colorado – Carrie Johansing and David Young. The piece was a delightful conversation about dreams, journeys, and materials. We split the installation into 3 parts and each focused on one part, coming back together to make decisions about the piece as a whole. These images are of my part of the installation – a suspended antique bed with a storm of silk at the top with electric blue glowing raindrops falling toward the floor. The whole piece is a bit magical! Come on down to the historical Feed and Grain building this afternoon from 1-5 pm to see the rest of the work in the show…
