Mildred's Lane

In the summer of 2016, I stayed for three weeks at Mildred's Lane, an arts fellowship run by J. Morgan Puett and Mark Dion. Mildred's Lane is a rustic, 96-acre site deep in the woods of rural northeastern Pennsylvania, in the upper Delaware River Valley, which borders New York state. It is a home and an experiment in living that attempts to coevolve a rigorous pedagogical strategy, where a working-living-researching environment has been developed to foster engagement with every aspect of life. During that time I worked very closely with Professor Robert Williams (UK) on his Alchemist's Shack; a large-scale site work, part of the OM Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum project, ongoing at Mildred's Lane since 1998.
