Corridor Project IIII: habitat
june 22, 2009 - Corridor Project founder Michael Hebb invited artists Hannes Wingate and Michael McManus to enter a densely forested median of Interstate 5 near mile marker 27. Possessing two knives, a hatchet, and sufficient food and water, the group spent 3 days investigating the landscape and creating habitat—making fire, cooking, and building a shelter, tables, chairs, and other objects such as eating utensils, rope, brooms, and mats exclusively from materials found on site.
