cob (clay, sand, and straw), pallet wood, and fire bricks
installation and performance
As part of Asian Art Initiative's 2015 pearl street micro-grants, provisional island
built a fully functional wood fired oven out of cob—a traditional building material made of clay, sand, and straw.
Evoking a pre-industrial past and a post-industrial future, the mobile oven served as the center piece of several events throughout the summer.
