A 8:45 minute video accompanies the installation. This video grass \’gras\ exposes the roots of Berman’s metal sculpture. The construction process is revealed, from recycled tin cans in the studio, to the marathon assembly at which the 32,400 pieces of the metal grass were inserted into the base. Grazing freely from studio to the suburban “lawnscape”, the video playfully provides the museum audience with material for a deeper understanding of the sculpture’s historical, ecological and cultural themes.

Recently the Grass/gras' installation won First Place Prize!!!!!!!!!! in the SMART Art – Trash into Treasure’ exhibition! This is sponsored by Lincart Gallery - in collaboration with David de Rothschild's Adventure Ecology & Sculpt the Future Foundation. The exhibition is on view in San Francisco June 2009.

Producer: WILL ZAVALA is a video producer whose work ranges from personal profile to historical documentary. His films and videos have been screened in festivals in the United States and Germany, won awards in the U.S. and appeared in local PBS broadcasts.
