Below is a video of an art installation called ‘Brautigan 2009’. It was at the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito California. From what I can tell, it looks like the exhibit was there in about June of 2009.

Chris Sollars is the artist behind the sculpture/multi-media installation. He has a page with lots of pix & info on his site.

The artist represents 7 of Richard’s books:

Revenge of the Lawn (I love the green plastic lawn chair!)
Rommel Drives on Deep into Egypt
A Confederate General from Big Sur
In Watermelon Sugar
The Pill vs The Springhill Mine Disaster
The Abortion
Trout Fishing in America

I love the simplicity of each book’s installation.

One thought on “installation

  1. I would love to see the “In Watermelon Sugar” one. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see them all, but to have a physcial repersentation on “In Watermelon Sugar” would be so cool. Its not something that I think you be easily brought into thisa world and made for everyone to see. Its abstract and could be more than just a place in time. Watermelon Sugar itself could be a place, or a time. Or even something as complicated as a state of mind. To put something that has so many paths it could take and put it into art would take talent and skill that I have yet to see, but am sure has been done. But only few, not only with talent, but with the right mind set could truley pull it off.
