This field station uses a metal rainwater-collection vessel as its structure. Dion first began creating functional outdoor laboratories as artworks in the early 1990s and has since created numerous iterations similar to this work, each sensitive to its surroundings and context. The inside space contains the tools necessary for scientific discovery and acts as a gathering place for ecologists, natural historians, and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Please visit our online calendar (stormking.org/calendar) for related education and public programming that will take place inside and outside of this work.
