Our Role

LAND Studio played a central role in curating and orchestrating The Archive by Rebecca Louise Law at the Cleveland Public Library, as part of their SEE ALSO program. Our involvement spanned multiple facets, including artist selection, project management, and the meticulous oversight of the flower production process, which involved sourcing, gathering, drying, and stringing the thousands of flowers that comprise the heart of the installation.

In Spring 2023, we facilitated collaborative workshops, bringing together volunteers and staff to participate in the flower stringing process. Subsequently, LAND Studio coordinated the blast-freezing of all 500,000 flowers to preserve their freshness.

Additionally, we collaborated with local fabricator MERCER-works to construct the installation structure, ensuring it seamlessly complemented the overall vision. In June 2023, our team worked closely alongside the artist for six days, demonstrating our dedication to bringing The Archive to life at the Cleveland Public Library
