In conjunction with the Smart Museum's traveling exhibition Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art, Material Exchange participated in a short project-based residency in Marquette, Michigan. The project began with a retired wooden fishing boat refashioned into a truck topper for transportation to the Upper Peninsula atop a rented Chevy Silverado. Upon reaching its destination, the topper was transformed again into a sculpture and installed upon the frozen surface of Teal Lake. The sculpture was collaboratively designed and built with high school and University students while Material Exchange was in residence. The sculpture will, in the warming months of spring, sink to the bottom of the lake and fulfill its role as a freshwater fish habitat.
