Greenmeme is the vision of artists Freya Bardell and Brian Howe. Together, they have been creating site-specific public artwork since 2005. Qualities of material, context and form begin anew with each project. Their investigations into the history of both the surrounding culture and environment reveals unique ways in which each project can work to raise awareness of these qualities through sculpture, performance and community engagement. Since coming together their work has continued to range from smaller locally-focused commissions to creating projects on a national and international scale.

We're currently working on these projects...

Meadow Project

The meadow is framed by walls and a ceiling, the semi permeable nature of the structure suggests a softer boundary between the impermeable surfaces of much of Los Angeles and the huge swaths of protected parkland surrounding it. The walls are punctured on opposite sides to create a pathway through the blooming patch of meadow.
A motion detector monitors visitor responses and if they take their time passing through the space, the environment enhances the feeling with peaceful natural acoustics – but if they become frantic and active so do the acoustical properties of the space, encouraging us to slow down, smell the flowers and relax.
