In the spirit of the late 1960's hippie exodus to Woodstock and the Catskills, Slowinski received through Karmic restitution a dilapidated cabin bordering state forest in a remote area of the Catskill Park. Without electricity, using only hammers, crowbars and a chain saw, the artist demolished and rebuilt the structure. Following is a brief description of the project.
Part 1: The Dilapidated Cabin
The original cabin, built in 1921, was rotten to the core, the only thing holding it up was the aluminum siding a prior owner installed in the 1960's.
In the center of the living room was a gaping, meteoric hole and the upstairs loft bedroom had no roof left all
The kitchen as it was left twenty years ago, and fridge with vandals bullet holes.
The remnant of a center pole and wall barely held the remaining rotten, moldy roof aloft.
