In this ever-growing print-installation, a rusted steel relief plate in the shape of a rudimentary wing was printed over 150 times to create an unbound book of monoprints. In its latest iteration, it was installed in the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum for ArtPrize 2017 in Grand Rapids, MI. While this work was not originally created for the purpose of installment in this particular museum, the mission of this work is harmonious with that of its former host: to create a memorial and documentation of a burdensome event or period. The wings share physical shape attributes of common depictions of angels, however the wings belong to a person who has been bestowed with the appendages undeservingly and undesirably. The dispersal of the wing’s burdensome density is then spread out over approximately 150 prints, generating a voluminous and overwhelming book of wings.
