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...

Shadow and Light

A series of screens fabricated to enhance the security and aesthetic appeal of a south facing storefront in Eagle Rock, California. Two water-jet cut stainless steel panels simulate the effect of dappled light filtering through a trees canopy.

The inside surface reflects light back into the interior, while a white exterior of frosted glass reflects heat.
