Day 11: Installation

Before leaving for Columbus this morning, I met with a few members of the Tree Sweater Gang to install the vine on the Main/Limestone corner of the CentrePointe block. This is an action I have been planning since they first surrounded the block in horse fencing. We did the installation at 7am so that it would be up for all of the downtown farmers' market traffic. The final vine was over 100 feet with about 50 flowers that were held to the vine with coilless safety pins so they could be "picked" by passers by and worn as broaches. The installation went smoothly despite the unexpected amount of traffic downtown and the threat of rain. Hopefully the farmers' market shoppers enjoyed the little Saturday surprise.
