Kat Burdine in Honduras Installation Art in Honduras

Kat Burdine '08 taught art and organized youth for OYE in Honduras this past year. Here she is working on an installation. "As many projects do, the Persian rug project came from a casual conversation and a 'what if' moment. I didn't realize the Persian rugs would become reality until I begin trying to hunt down materials for a 46" x 93" stencil in Honduran markets. After buying nine yards of industrial plastic there was no turning back."

"It became a five-color/four-layer stencil which consumed my nights and my friend's apartment. The day we began it was surreal because I was standing in one of the most beautiful places in the world painting with wonderful people. I could not have asked for anything more. We had to move quickly because rainy season was moving in on us but in three days we were able to finish 11 large rugs."
