7: Installation at Alderbrook Station

  • What would you do with 33,077 feet of fishing line? Endless fishing trips could be an option, but Sarah Biemiller and Robert Hutchison put their stock of fishing line toward “7,” an installation that crosses art with architecture at Alderbrook Station in Astoria, Oregon. The three-story building was used by fisherman to repair and store their nets, but has since been abandoned with evidence of their existence in rusting equipment, old coffee cups, and hatches in the floor where the nets used to hang. Biemiller and Hutchinson suspended fishing wire through seven of the hatches, creating vertical columns that span the three floors and architecturally highlight what used to be. Each column boasts a different thread pattern, and shimmers ever so slightly when light penetrates the timber shed. The ghostly figures whisper the stories that have been all but lost, and fill the void of memories past.
