In 1988, Bay Area legend and Headlands Alumni Artist Mark Thompson (AIR ’86) collaborated with dancer and choreographer Joanna Haigood (AFF ’88) on The Keeping of Bees is like the Directing of Sunshine, in which the artists performed with several live beehives Thompson relocated to The Gym. In celebration of 40 years of Headlands, Thompson has returned for Process + Place, revisiting this iconic work nearly 35 years later. Over the course of several weeks, Thompson has again transformed The Gym, creating a multisensory installation utilizing sound, video, architectural intervention, and beeswax.
