Grow DIY Manual, 2014
a project by Holly Schmidt in partnership with Other Sights for Artists’ Projects.

“Inspired by the Farmers’ Almanac which is a repository for sage advice about gardening, weather predictions and canning recipes, the Grow DIY Manual brings together critical writing, illustrated DIY projects, weather reports and local seasonal recipes. The manual acts as both a reflection on the Grow project and a look forward to future possibilities.”

Commissioned Texts


Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed: Tastemakers, 2018
“Artists, so the stereotype goes, are those who lack a proclivity for typical schooling. Not rationally-minded enough to succeed in an environment of memorization and recall, testing, argument-making. So, when artists re-enter these strange public spaces, what is our role?”

Zoë  Chan: Travels in  Chocolate, Candy Culture, and Kid Creativity, 2017
“Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed play thus with the art milieu’s unspoken rules of the game, destabilizing its systems of value through their creation of a chocolate bar that “zigzags” in and out of commodity status.”

Vanessa Kwan: Big Rock Candy Mountain – the Start of Something Bigger and Smaller, 2016
“In the constellation of good and bad taste, kids are a special case: they are a powerful marketing demographic, but their dependency on the full-fledged agency of adults makes it hard to access their creative potential in real terms. They are wild consumers, with guardians as proxies.”

Randy Lee Cutler: Informal Communities: Celestial, Terrestrial and Subterranean Movements, 2011
“The Grow Project and the Bulkhead Urban Agriculture Lab began germinating long before the first seeds were sown and ended long after the harvesting of carrots, mustards greens, pumpkins, and other crops. A concatenation of performance art, sculpture, social practice and still unnamed forms of emergent creativity…”

Jordan Strom: Take The Road To The Future Now(1) on T+T (Tony Romano and Tyler Brett), False Creek, 2010
“In summer of 2007 a banner was proudly unfurled from one of the upper stories of a newly erected condominium tower on the north footing of Vancouver’s Cambie Street Bridge.”

Bruce Grenville on Eric Deis, Last Chance, 2010
“It is a sad picture, and one that carries a surprising anxiety. The small house is surrounded by chain link fencing, topped with barbed wire, a ‘beware of dog’ sign bars the door, and nearby another hand-scrawled posting advises that the house and lot are not for sale.”

Holly Ward: The Transcendental Monument on Köbberling & Kaltwasser, The Games are Open, 2010
“It is a sad picture, and one that carries a surprising anxiety. The small house is surrounded by chain link fencing, topped with barbed wire, a ‘beware of dog’ sign bars the door, and nearby another hand-scrawled posting advises that the house and lot are not for sale.”
