“I wanted to create an image that is harmonious with this beautiful Colorado location, honoring Herbert’s piece while processing it through my lens,” Koko wrote in an Instagram post.
Folded Grove is slated to be on display through 2025.
The artist distinguished herself in Colorado during the COVID-19 pandemic with “Project Spread Hope,” a series of installations in which she wheat-pasted positive imagery and messages in outdoor public areas. Koko created several temporary “Project Spread Hope” pieces on the Red Brick Center for the Arts campus in summer 2021 including a bright orange and yellow heart with the word “hope” written in the universal font invented by her grandfather.
Koko is currently in production on the documentary film “head+heart+hand: exploring the genius of Herbert Bayer,” which navigates Bayer’s theories on visual communication and delves into his diverse work, life and legacy. A Kickstarter campaign to fund the film is expected to launch soon. A teaser is available at kokobayer.com.
