Documenting the creation of Woven Whimsy, Stickworks by Patrick Dougherty at Atlanta Botanical Garden Gainesville

I went to document the work in progress of sculptor Patrick Dougherty, who was creating one of his monumental sculptures at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in Gainesville. The idea was to capture Dougherty and his assistants working on the Woven Whimsy to bring you a behind-the-scenes look at how his work is made. After the work of art was completed, I returned to the garden to film the piece and people interacting with it. The large-scale site-specific installation will be at this location for two years, and eventually it’ll broke down overtime.
