The Kid Gets Out of the Picture at the GSD
Cambridge, Massachusetts
2016, Complete

“The Kid Gets out of the Picture” is an installation of a contemporary English picturesque garden set inside the Loeb Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Exploring William Gilpin’s picturesque travel sketches from the late eighteenth century, the LADG appropriated the organizational logic of his drawings, which frequently depict dense, heterogeneous collections of rocks and plants. These “clumps” consolidate together as a single entity regardless of the diversity of their constituent parts, creating a material landscape that is both continuously variable and continuously navigable.
