Backyard Build

Using only nature & the materials in your backyard, create a sculpture/piece of artwork that represents yourself or how you feel while stuck in quarantine. Gather rocks, branches, hoses, an old shovel, whatever you have laying around in your backyard. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. Use your phone to document the process through a time-lapse, short video, or photo.
