Dwelling for Intervals is a decade long, morphing International artist Residency program, based on (and in) a forest of young trees. First known as A Week in the Woods, the project included a forest of seedlings situated in a room, in an apartment, in Little Italy, Montreal, Canada (2001-2003). Several years later some of the original saplings went on a trans-Atlantic journey to a cabin, in a backyard in central Rotterdam, The Netherlands. There is was known as This Neck of the Woods (2005-2007). Finally as a roving para-site called Knock on Woods the International Residency staked claim to land in The Netherlands, France, Portugal, Canada, Germany and Japan (2007-2009).
Dwelling for Intervals is an independent state, a sculpture, a series of collaborations, a wilderness, a tree house, a travelling circus and a relative site for temporary doing and undoing. This web site uses archived images, texts, videos and other remnants left behind in the "official box-under-the-bed" as re-presented by the resident technician.
