Heather Joseph-Witham: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report

Garden Gnome

A Garden Gnome

Excerpt:

Gnome and Garden, a documentary

The lawn gnome is making a comeback. From roaming gnomes to Laker gnomes, youtube videos of evil stalking gnomes to roleplaying and gamer gnomes, gnome encampment participants at Burning Man, to the tellers of gnomish legends, this folkloric creature has captured the whimsy of many across cultures. I will tell the tale of the 21st century gnome and its human caretakers and liberators through a 20 minute documentary video.
