We are thrilled to present the launch of the online publication for Forestrial Brain!
 
For those who were around the gallery in the summer of 2017, it's hard to forget Matt Shane and Jim Holyoak's epic project, Forestrial Brain.
 
Emerging out of the artists' eight-day hike along the West Coast Trail, the exhibition consisted of vast and immersive drawings of the forest that enveloped the walls at Open Space in an imaginative web of being.
 

Whether you got the chance to see it in person or not, don't miss the chance to check it out in new form online. This beautifully-produced website (credit to Jacob Baker-Kretzmar) features an introduction by curator Breanna Fabbro, essays by Tracy Valcourt and Jennifer Cane, an interview and video by Greta Hamilton, and more behind-the-scenes footage from the artists themselves of this expansive and memorable project.
 
Please note, the site is not optimized for mobile devices; for the full experience, check it out on a bigger screen.
