Cut Twice is a collection of jointed, kinetic building blocks made from reclaimed and new 2×4’s; matter that has refused to be refuse. The persistence of matter and the insistence that life will go on, that garbage will not go away are both celebrated and lamented as a demented pile of reaching, writhing and stressed-out lumber grows and undulates through the hotel’s public space.
Gladstone Hotel is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Gladstone Grow Op, a five day exhibition celebrating innovative ideas and conceptual responses to landscape, gardens, art and place making under the theme: culture of landscape.
