The Birdsell Project: STRT/SLCT

The Birdsell Project is an experiment in reuse, impermanence, and adaptability. Founded in 2014 by Nalani Stolz and Myles Robertson, the projects seeks to revitalize underutilized spaces by opening them to artists and the community.

After a two-year hiatus the project is hosting a summer residency comprising 9 artists from around the world. Each artist (or collaborative duo) will create an installation inside Vested Interest, a former dry cleaning facility turned business incubator on South Bend's South East side. 

About halfway through the residency I captured a morning of installation with STRT/SLCT, a duo formed by local artists Krista Hoefle and Eli Kahn. The show opens July 28th but for now, enjoy the process:

Dig the work? Pass it on. Takes a village to tell a story.
