Project Description

Artist: Patricia Goodrich
Year: 2002-2003
Size: 160 meters x variable
Media:
Earth (follows deer path out of birch/pine forest then river-like looping down sunny hillside, finally criss-crossing paths, climbs hill and comes to rest in mowed grove with bench, West-East orientation)

270 meters metallic audio cassette tape, containing voices of 44 participating artists/writers/composers from 15 countries.

Perennial wildflowers, &Mac249; lb. each:
Ox-eye daisy
Shasta daisy
Gloriosa daisy
Black-eyed daisy
Purple Cone
Gay Feather

Annual wildflowers, &Mac249; lb. each:
Corn Poppy
Flanders Poppy

Perennial bulbs:
900 Narcissus and Daffodil
100 Darwin Hybrid Tulips
70 Anemone
450 Oxalis (Iron Cross)
275 Sparaxis Total bulbs: 1795

Attention needed to maintain earthwork:
After summer bloom (late fall, when vegetation is brown), cut to 4-6” height. Do not trim too close to ground. Patience is needed for flowers to reseed themselves and for bulbs to spread.


Acknowledgements

Grateful acknowledgement is made to the artists who have given voice, allowing for the reproduction of their words and works, and without whom, there would be no Voices Underground.  For technical support I am indebted to Julius Vitali.  Nor would the project be realized without the cooperation and support of Europos Parkas, its staff, and particularly its president Gintaras Karosas.

Thank you to Santa Fe Art Institute and Vermont Studio Center for giving me a place, uninterrupted time, and access to many of the participating artists.

Financial support from Puffin Foundation and from artist Louise Hicks is truly appreciated.

Thank you to Gintare Kaukyte, Zana Keida, Mariana Markun for their hard work and good spirits during the creation of this earthwork at Europos Parkas, and to Rebecca Ballestra for documenting it on film.
