“Bubble Pub” transforms the four corn cribs at the corner of F and Churchill Rd, into shining vessels of bubbling fermentation The cribs will glow gold, sienna, russet, and brown, inspired by the palette of local home brew beers. Inside, the bubble action begins within an illuminated form. From left to right the fermentation progresses in each crib from a few bubbles to a joyful explosion.
Drive or bike along 50-miles of rolling Wisconsin countryside this fall and experience art installations exploring our collaboration with the land. Fermentation Festival celebrates fermentation as a metaphor for the dynamic life forces that stimulate creation in all mediums.
Gail and Jenny visited Reedsburg, WI as guests of the Wormfarm Institute and Fermentation Fest staff to visit sites, ideate and develop a design. Following this jam packed weekend we worked together in person and via Skype to create drawings and a model which served as the foundation for Bubble Pub.
Our goal was to create an illuminated sculpture that would look different in the daytime, at dusk and at night. The landscape around Reedsburg is so varied and beautiful it was difficult to conceive a project that would not vanish in the landscape from afar.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
