Portal to the Pollinator Pathway (shown left), Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle, 2012
Bergmann was commissioned to create this installation at the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park. Working with design collaborators Studio Matthews and architect/builder team Jake Labarre and Nicole Abercrombie, the exhibition was installed at the Park from June 2012 to January 2013. The Portal to the Pollinator Pathway was a ‘section’ of the project and an explanation of the thinking behind it. The ‘Portal’ was then planted into the Pathway in spring of 2013.
