General Economy, Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E.) facilitates public, creative exchanges of plants, goods and words. G.E.E.E. transforms underutilized spaces into functional trading sites with trust and goodwill as the operative currencies. From installations and performative events, G.E.E.E. has received thousands of notes, poems, and trades.
Observing studio plants and flowers inspire questions that lead to explorations of material, light and dimension. Often defying conventional function, objects of wonder seek only to inspire. Combining paint, plants, wire, paper, furniture, light and language our objects lead to questions about materials, utility and meaning, aiming to collapse the boundaries between art and life.
A life-long admirer of Joseph Cornell, Bob Bergman began working with wood as a sculpture student at the School of the Art Institute in the 1970s. From stretcher bars to tortion boxes, from straightedges, to signs and stakes, Bob has made every wood-thing that Cream Co. needed.
