Here's what everyone sees the minute they set foot into the gallery or whatever room the installation happens to be in. It's a giant rolled-out sod lawn. Its in a gilt picture frame and there's thick plastic sheeting that goes under the dirt to protect the floor and catch the water. On the lawn will be a bunch of picnic baskets holding picnic blankets and lots of goodies. Participants can open the baskets and eat whatever's inside. This is also where everyone sits for the performance. If the room isn't big enough, there can be a smaller lawn closer to the stage and participants who don't want to sit on the grass can stand or sit behind the lawn.

I want to show you this picture of an awesome use of a harpsichord for an invalid desk. I'm supposed to lay down for two weeks, so Jad moved the chord over the sofa for me. Maybe I'll practice some piano music while I'm horizontal.

Hey! This is really fun to see what is coming - and it is really weird. I like it.
I did see the squirrel animation on here - very cute! You are so amazing! I can't wait to see it all put together! Fun!
