Trillium Project | 2006-2019
Location: The Cabin at Shotpouch Creek
The Trillium Project was a place-based, revolving residency at the Cabin at Shotpouch Creek. Residents spent one to three days at the cabin, exploring the land and crafting visual art, creative writing, scientific observations, music, or other works that emerged from their engagement with the Shotpouch land.
Trillium residents would come and go from the cabin, taking inspiration and information from the creek, meadows and upland forests as well as from other residents working on distinctly different creative projects. The effect was an annual cross pollination of ideas and the budding of new, unexpected collaborations as residents shared perspectives and expertise with one another, learning to see the land through a variety of eyes.
The Trillium Project ran every year between 2006 and 2019 during the spring wildflower season, hosting some 40 residents each year, and filling the cabin with art and writing that sprung forth from the place as honestly as any flower or fern.
