Web We Wove was a temporary sculpture created by Faith Purvey and Shaunna Foster in the Organ Mountain’s Achenbach Canyon. Hikers who make the journey to the canyon traverse ever-changing landscape, following switchbacks along a ridge where rocks unfold into vast meadows. Like hands parting, the landscape generously reveals its hidden places to those who invest in getting there.
Those who visited the area during a two week period in November 2015 may have encountered Web We Wove. At Talovera, near the boundary of a military zone where one can see the other side of the range, this spot features a rain-fed cattle tank and natural watering area. Using 20 ft lengths of Kevlar, lashed together with burlap twine Faith and Shaunna wove a web. It was anchored to an old cement wall using existing hardware and held water-like droplets of shiny styrofoam.
