Cabin-Time Art Camp is a roaming creative residency to remote places. Cabin-Time invites artists, designers, photographers, writers, musicians, craftspeople, scientists, cartographers, bird-watchers, wood-workers, planners, organizers, schemers and dreamers to join in cooperative intentional isolation, to make site-specific work based on location and theme. Conscientious environmental stewardship is a core principle of Cabin-Time, through making work and maintaining camp. Following each week-long residency is an exhibition, where work made during and following the residency is shown and documented. A trip specific field guide is published, compiling and archiving the work made during each expedition.
The experience at Cabin-Time is a cooperative environment. Creatives are expected to find transportation to Grand Rapids, Michigan. The residency fee covers transportation from Grand Rapids to the site, co-op vegetarian meals, cabin rental costs (where applicable), and on-site supply needs. We work together to set up camp, share chores, cook group meals, and help each other with our ideas.
Cabin-Time: Wilderness will take 10 creatives to Wilderness State Park on the northwest coast of Michigan’s lower peninsula. CT4 leaves Grand Rapids on Saturday, February 2 and will return Friday, February 8, 2013 (weather pending). We will be stationed in a 1920’s CCC-built bunkhouse on the grounds of the state park. The cost for this residency is $200.
We are looking for projects and ideas that explore the theme “Beyond Was All Around Me” in relation to Wilderness State Park. There are no restrictions on how you should use the theme in your project.
