two hundred 1m x 1m colored nylon carpet sections were hand knitted in vietnam by 60 villagers, then sewn together and stretched over a 1300 sq. ft. rolling landform at the cornerstone festival of gardens in the wine country of sonoma, california. the installation also included oversize zippers and polished coconut shells. a veil of clear fishing line was wrapped around the perimeter to create an “invisible fence”, which would sometimes disappear, and at other times, catch the light and form a shimmering wall around the garden. vietnamese lullabies by contemporary paris-based musicians huong thanh and nguyên lê, completed the soothing environment.
