Morganne makes things and situations that ask questions about fantasy, freedom and escape, using materials that suit the situation and always starting from a research perspective. For her first week in residence, she visited local historic landmarks and archives, learning the legends of Pentwater and Oceana County. Her interest was sparked by the minute mention in a historical book about local Indian burial mounds. Morganne searched for evidence of an un-earthed mound that is said to be very close to the studio. She couldn't be absolutely sure that she had found it, so she staked a marker that asks “Have you found a mound?” on the potential hallow ground, and drew a map to the site- leaving copies of the map at the historical society. Morganne also set out to build the county’s smallest sand dune, right in our back yard meadow. She sourced sand from a handful of area beaches and dunes to pile up in a clearing. On the residents’ last night in town, after Another Pleasant Evening, visitors and friends circled the dune at sunset.
