Westbrook Artists' Site - exhibition series 06 Clean
4 x 4 - K. Lair
"4 x 4" was installed on the east side of the WAS barn over the summer of 2006. Plots 4' x 4' and spaced 4' apart were installed in rows of 10 and planted to a mix of native grasses. Some of the plots were transplanted from other parts of WAS and other were seeded (seed mixes from Allendan Seed Company). 4' x 4' was intended to be an open-ended installation in which the native prairie grasses slowly would extend in plots across the open field. The plots were left for several years and one of the columns was lost. In the summer of 2013 the line was reestablished with a new mix of native seed including forbs. Despite being planted late in the year the plots appear viable.
