Crookedworks Architecture | Design | Build, Carey Clouse and Zachary Lamb.
Artemis Institute is thrilled to have Carey and Zach develop their project TOSS for the Jackson Hole community. TOSS will be exhibited On August 16 at Public Art Celebration sponsored by Jackson Hole Public Art Initiative at Home Ranch Welcome Center 5;30-8pm. TOSS will be re-envisioned this Fall at the Venice Biennale. Carey and Zach's bios:
Carey Clouse is an architect and educator living in New Orleans and rural Vermont. She has a post-professional degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a BArch from the University of Oregon. After receiving the Rose Architectural Fellowship, Carey has taught architecture at Tulane University and design/build courses at Yestermorrow Design/Build School.
Clouse teaches courses that address the overlap between social justice, environmental stewardship, and urbanism. In addition to teaching, she is co-partner of Crookedworks, an architecture-design-build firm rooted in New Orleans, LA. Clouse currently serves on the Board of the Association for Community Design, Transport For NOLA, Architects, Designers and Planners For Social Responsibility, and the Broad Street Design Review.
Zachary Lamb is a designer, green building professional, and educator living in New Orleans. Zach received an MArch from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a BA from Williams College. He has taught courses on urban sustainability and architecture at Tulane University and international design-build workshops for MIT. He currently provides triple-bottom-line design guidance for Green Coast Enterprises, a New Orleans green building and urban redevelopment firm.
Zach is also the co-founder of Crookedworks, a New Orleans-based architecture-design-build firm focused on projects addressing urban sustainability and post-disaster cities. Crookedworks' projects have won numerous awards including recognition by the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale, the Animal Architecture Awards, and the AIA New Orleans.
Working with the material cast-offs found in developed areas around the world, Carey Clouse and Zachary Lamb create a body of work that anticipates a future in which climate change and resource scarcity have moved to the forefront. This project addresses the issues of urban habitat loss and emergent ecologies, while highlighting the productive power of spontaneous design interventions. Deployed in underused public spaces in Jackson, WY, this work will challenge viewers to reconsider human involvement in natural processes.

Artemis Institute is excited to welcome back Remote Studio alum Stephen Clond to Jackson Hole to develop work for his project "Buyoming".
Stephen Clond grew up in the Arkansan Ozark mountains and attended Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. In 2009 he was Drury's representative speaker for the Missouri State/DRury University Art History Symposium, and in 2010 he graduated with Departmental Distinction for Excellence in Art History. Stephen took part in the Artemis Institute's Fall 2010 Remote Studio program in Livingston, Montana, where he helped design and build several architectural pieces for a park. Stephen now resides in Columbus, Ohio and hopes to begin his masters in architecture next Fall.
Taking a critical position of the relationship that culture has with advertising, Clond states. " if we live in a society where Carnival can take an Iggy Pop song about heroin and use it to sell cruises, Burger King can get Mary J. Blige to sing a song about chicken sandwiches, and the anti-consumerist song Mercedes Benz by Janis Joplin has actually been used in a Mercedes Benz commercial, then why wouldn't McDonald's put up Goldsworthy-styled advertisements in the wilderness as some sort of ill-informed demographic outreach program?
My work will explore the relationship between advertising and culture by juxtaposing well-known slogans and brands with heretofore untapped media available in the wilderness: sticks, mud, rocks, leaves... the outdoors itself.
This idea will be investigated in two separate ways:
Investigation One will consist both of photographs documenting "advertisements" created with immediate natural materials and subsequently dismantle, and of sketches done in situ for proposed "advertisements" that are too large or destructive to actually carry out.
Investigation Two explores advertising's tie to culture utilizing spiderwebs as billboards.- think Charlotte's web, but Charlotte wants McRibs. Web-spinning spiders are a fastidious bunch and generally throw out alterations after a few hours, so no lasting harm will be done.
No interventions will last past the photo I take to document it.
