Susanna Battin (Los Angeles, CA) took interest in North Mountain’s location as a site of continual transformation. Using off-hand iPhone photos and journalistic jots, she documented an evening’s walk in a short book and multi-page PDF entitled To the barn and back. She culminated her time here with an installation that integrated the particular history of the borders of this land, its past function as an apple farm, and the vernacular architecture of a stile.

“Sometimes all it takes is rearranging the furniture.” – Susanna
