It’s been a while since we’ve heard from inTysons contributor Jordan Clough, whose innovative takes on public art and urban reuse initiatives reframe visions of Tysons. That’s because Jordan has been busy bringing a few of his ideas to life as a participating artist in the Park Potomac Artomatic — a five-week long art festival running through Friday, December 9 in Potomac, Maryland.
Jordan, on behalf of his design firm Living Alchemy, is showcasing several prototypes and concept pieces, including planters, planted light fixtures, and mixed media sculptures.
The above piece is influenced by Jordan’s professional practice as a landscape architect and is an extension of his experience designing roof terrace gardens, green walls and urban landscapes. Part of Living Alchemy’s broader portfolio of projects and concept work, this exploration of smaller scale design themes playfully combines elements of light, plants, and materials with simple, yet strong geometry.
The Living Alchemy installation has been a steady bottleneck since opening, alluring eyes and generating buzz among critics and patrons alike.
From the Artomatic blog:
Wandering among the stalls at Park Potomac, it feels as if inspiration has struck already. Perhaps first time exhibiting artist Jordan Clough, who designs geometric sculptures using live plants, said it best: “people should take away the fact that there is a thriving arts scene in D.C., with depth and variety.”
Be sure to take some time over the upcoming holiday weekend to check out Jordan’s work, along with the works of over 350 artists, at the Park Potomac Artomatic before it closes on Friday, December 9.
Congrats to Jordan and Living Alchemy! Stay tuned for Jordan’s return to inTysons in the next few weeks.
