Gathering Table, Rabbit Island
For the Rabbit Island Artist Residency Program we have proposed and designed a multifunctional event table to be located within the forest and to be used for the program’s interdisciplinary gatherings, meetings, workshops and other various events.
Rabbit Island lies three miles east of Northern Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula on a gentle rise of sandstone that breaks the blue surface of Lake Superior. It is an undisturbed 90-acre island of forest and rock teeming with wildlife. A rugged northern ecosystem that remains in its natural state has never in its history suffered from development or subdivision.
Rob Gorski had the incredible opportunity to purchase the island with the vision to create a space where artists and researchers can draw from this unique wilderness in their individual practices. Imagine a remote island in the largest body of freshwater in the world. Now imagine living on that island and being a part of one of the most unique and challenging artist residencies in the world.
Rabbit Island is that island.
For Rabbit Island we have designed and proposed a multifunctional event table to be located within the forest and be used for the artist residency program’s occasional gatherings, meetings, workshops and other various events.
