a year and one day
Included in this set are images of New Orleans style tombs that are the inspiration of my upcoming project "a year and one day" which will be created in collaboration with the Garden Staff at Longue Vue House and Gardens in the Metairie neighborhood of New Orleans. Also included are images of plant life that may be incorporated, images from around the grounds of Longue Vue, and images from the many cemeteries I've been visiting in my research of this unique architectural burial tradition.

For "a year and one day," I am proposing to create a New Orleans style tomb that will erode over time and grow plants - both planned and spontaneous from the tomb. Visitors will be invited to step inside the tomb to experience a light-based interior artwork element.
