Home Departed/art intervention

Posted June 21, 2014, at 3:20 p.m.

Artist Susan Smith and a group of participants created an art installation at the site of the vacated Home Depot store on Longview Dr. in Bangor this week. The piece consists of a carpet rendered entirely in birdseed. The design for the carpet was derived from an early 1900 William Morris tapestry design. The empty box store has become the home for hundreds of birds, and even as the piece was being completed, birds were lining up on the eaves of the building waiting for a chance to swoop down and take part.
