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.
Artist and craftsmen Bob Bergman creates multi-purpose flexible furniture for the Cream Co. studio, off-site installations and G.E.E.E. HQ. Work tables, shelving and display units and movable plant supports mix high end craftsmanship and materials with cast away components from salvage yards. At times humorous and wacky, the furniture occupies both site and sight providing functionality and creative space.
