CAFKA.18: Don Russell

For CAFKA.18 Cambridge artist Don Russell built Stone, Clay, Fire: Making a Circle in Springbank Community Gardens at the rare Charitable Research Reserve in Cambridge, Ontario. He began by digging a circular trench approximately 30 cm deep by 20 cm wide. The trench was filled with clay and was lined with stones on either side. On top of the clay the artist established a fire that burned continuously from the morning of June 21 through June 28. During the month of June people were invited to come and experience the building of the circle and help tend the fire.
