At the Table was an installation and performance piece that came to life through a shared dinner. Jim’s past experience as a bowl turner merges with his current interest of participatory art created an experience in which participants engaged in dialogue about place, memory, and how traditions are translated. Jim made three large panels to create an enclosed space for the dinner, a large table, seating, and serving vessels, all inspired by Scandinavian design. The panel design was inspired by the carved porch panels of Jim’s family farm in Norway. Read more about Jim and his work here.
