Woodsorrel Garden Gallery

The Garden Gallery came about when my partner decided to try Animal Crossing on my Switch, played long enough to set up a tent, and then didn’t log in again. Stuck with an uninhabited tent in an inconvenient location, I eventually logged in as them and upgraded the tent to a house so that I could move it out of my new garden and into the woods. After a few weeks of running past a small, empty house full of cockroaches I thought about what I could perhaps do with that space. Second homes aren’t my style, so I decided to upgrade it, move it back into the garden, and turn it into a creative outlet—an art gallery. The Woodsorrel Garden Gallery opened on 23 May 2020.
