Fireweather is a collaborative installation by husband and wife team, Roy Wasson Valle and Koryn Woodward Wasson along with their good friend Jaime Chandler. The artists will be creating their inter-dimensional portal to join our world with the Land of Crystal Burn. Fireweather is an exploration of both wonder and temporal permanence, constructing a visible reminder that everything that has ever been or will ever be is present, it just happens to be at a different time. This exhibition is a continuation of Camp Dreamtree, commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art for the Scottsdale Civic Center Public Library, summer of 2014.
