All Is Leaf: Spring 2020 Programs - Earthships and Geodesic Domes

All Is Leaf: 2020 

Roaming Art and Ecology Residencies

Meet All Is Leaf… A roaming residency program featuring art retreats in novel spaces dedicated to fostering socio-ecological consciousness within the creative practice through deep, meaningful engagement with the earth and others.  

Found among the notes of the poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe is the claim:

“Everything is leaf.”

Through his fascination with plants and an in depth examination of their totality, noting the “morphology” of the natural world, he concluded that every part of a plant is leaf.  On nature, Goethe wrote, “We live within her, yet are foreign to her. Conversing with us endlessly, she never divulges her secret… Nature is even the unnatural. Those who cannot see her everywhere do not see her clearly anywhere.” 

 

All Is Leaf is now accepting submissions for two upcoming programs: 

The Phoenix Earthship Residency from April 11-17, 2020 

Geodesic Dome Residency from April 27 - May 3, 2020

 

All creative beings seeking dedicated time to contemplate land and earth and who desire participation in sustainable creative acts to change the world are encouraged to apply. If your work advocates awareness, innovation, or revolution towards a better relationship with our earth and each other, we want to hear from you.  Stay in a 5300 square foot earthen complex while making art and interacting with the beautiful New Mexico landscape, flora, and fauna.  Experience the unique vibrational frequency of a Geodesic Dome centered directly in the Mt. Hood National Forest, a dormant volcano capped by glaciers and covered in acres of old growth forest.  These are one-time residency experiences, as All Is Leaf is a nomadic program looking to introduce artists to new ways of making and thinking concerning astute environmental consciousness.  

The Phoenix is an Earthship.

An Earthship is a brand of passive solar earth shelter that is made of both natural and upcycled materials such as earth-packed tires, pioneered by architect Michael Reynolds. The Phoenix Earthship is a 5300 square foot earthen complex, a work of sustainable art and an ongoing experiment in sustainable design which was featured in 2014 as one of Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Eco-Stays.  The Earthship is located in the Greater World Community, the world's only Earthship subdivision. Started in 1994, this Earthship subdivision is the only official off-grid subdivision in the world and encompasses 630 acres of rolling sage-covered mesa with a deep gorge and beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Guests have access to the Earthship Visitors Center free of charge to learn all about Earthships. 

Spaceship Earth: The Geodesic Dome.

A Geodesic Dome is a hemispherical structure based on a geodesic polyhedron made up of triangular elements which are structurally rigid and distribute the structural stress throughout the structure.   Geodesic domes promote more efficient air circulation and keep temperatures even throughout the structure making them two to four times more energy-efficient than traditional homes. Since light refracts and stays inside the dome, these structures are able to take full advantage of solar gain, which reduces the need for artificial lighting.  They are the only man-made structure that gets proportionally stronger as it increases in size. It is also lighter, more structurally sound and requires fewer materials. This particular Geodesic Dome is located in Mt. Hood National Forest in a secluded creekside setting. 

This residency includes:

7 days, 6 nights in The Phoenix Earthship or the Geodesic Dome

Access to the entire property and surrounding grounds for contemplation and creation of work

Meals and snacks for the duration of the residency

Application assistance for grants, residencies, jobs, etc

Transportation to local excursions (airport pickup/dropoff available upon request for a small fee)

Optional participation in reading groups and discussions regarding art and ecology

Apply as an individual artist or collaborative group.  Applications Due March 1, 2020.

Stacy Scibelli is an artist and designer originally from New York. Having served as faculty for several academic institutions, including Rutgers University, SUNY, and Parsons: The New School, and as visiting artist at Olin College and RISD, she has worked extensively advising students along their creative pathway and has years of experience generating creativity and accessing the flow state. Stacy’s experience with curricular development and program coordination, as well as having the honor of participating as an Artist in Residence at Mass MOCA, Otis College of Art in Los Angeles, the Boston Center for the Arts, and Intercultural Odysseys in Costa Rica, has generated a vested interest in communal art making and residency programming. Additionally, as an original founding member of The Shirey in Brooklyn, Stacy has cultivated a passion for collective art spaces and the connections made through sharing the sacred space of intentional making and meaningful work.  Stacy travels with students internationally regularly, facilitating service learning through institutions and companies such as Rustic Pathways, sharing her passion for exploration and learning through positive action and responsible education.  She is a recipient of a Mass MOCA Assets for Artists grant, a Franklin Furnace Grant, and a project grant from Possible Futures in Atlanta GA.  Stacy has exhibited at Field Projects, Proof Gallery, Present Company, and The Parlour Bushwick in Brooklyn, the Danforth Art Museum, and the Torrance Art Museum in Los Angeles, in addition to performing at Dixon Place, the Slipper Room, and various other venues.  Stacy was recently Artist in Residence at Arts, Letters, and Numbers (http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/) in Averill Park NY and at the Vermont Studio Center (https://vermontstudiocenter.org/), and is participating in the Labor Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute in 2020 (https://sfai.org/labor-residency/labor-artists/). 

During the residency, Stacy will be available for dialogue and assistance on the art making process and concept development, as well as application consultation.  Stacy will be preparing the meals and arranging all of the excursions, which are totally optional but also open to suggestion and collaboration. 

Please take note: there are no dedicated art facilities at the All Is Leaf spaces.  This residency is best suited for small works, contemplation, performance, documentation, research, and writing.  You are free to utilize the entire space and the surrounding grounds, but no alterations can be made to the property.  The mission of All Is Leaf is to facilitate access to unique and novel environments that impact the creative process.

All creative beings seeking dedicated time to contemplate land and earth and who desire participation in sustainable creative acts to change the world are encouraged to apply. If your work advocates awareness, innovation, or revolution towards a better relationship with our earth and each other, we want to hear from you.  Geodesic Domes are experiments in tension and integrity seeking to improve human shelter through accessibility and efficiency.  Buckminster Fuller, a strident pioneer of socio-ecological thought, is credited with bringing these structures into American mainstream thought as part of mid-century design and innovation.  Fuller dedicated his life as an experiment seeking to “find what a single individual could contribute to changing the world and benefiting all humanity" The first full sphere geodesic dome was constructed at the University of Oregon in 1959.

They are also lighter, more structurally sound and require fewer materials. This particular Geodesic Dome is located in a secluded creekside setting surrounded by tall cedars, two seasonal creeks and a waterfall. It is centered directly in the Mt. Hood National Forest, a dormant volcano capped by glaciers.  Mt. Hood is home to hiking trails, alpine lakes and the Timberline Trail which winds through acres of old growth forest while encircling the peak, passing waterfalls, glacial creeks, and meadows. Deer and other woodland creatures are likely visitors of the dome daily at dawn and dusk.

The triangular components of the Geodesic Dome evenly distribute tension across the domed structure, creating a stable and strong foundation while using less material than traditional buildings, offering the greatest volume for the surface area and doing more with less.  This All Is Leaf program highlights the importance of experimental and speculative design towards the search for the principles governing the universe which help advance the evolution of humanity in a positive and constructive way, doing more with less.

7 days, 6 nights in The Geodesic Dome
