Q: What was your favorite plant growing up?

Q: What interests you about the plants you selected for Northern Spark?

Q: What is your favorite Northern Spark memory?
A: Last year a friend and fellow artist, Joshua McGarvey, projected a work called Ice Fall-Feel the Change. You viewed the massive projection by lying on angled cots, almost like being inside the Gravatron at the fair. There was something so immersive about this piece coupled with laying next to a stranger that really stayed with me.
Q: When was the last time you stayed up until 5:26 a.m.?
A: Probably last Northern Spark!
