Repurposing Art In The Natural Dye Garden


Working with University of North Texas fiber’s students and UNT artist / teacher, Lesli Robertson, Greenmeme designed and produced a canopy and seating area from repurposed nautical rope previously used in a public sculpture in Long Beach, CA. Titled "Knotty Nest", this MAP 2013 project includes a permanent seating and a shade canopy out of repurposed materials from a public art piece in Long Beach, California for the new Natural Dye Garden at UNT. The idea for this piece evolved after several conversation between Janeil Engelstad / MAP and Lesli Robertson at UNT. Titled "Knotty Nest" this a collaborative, participatory project developed for the greater Denton community.
