Installation view of Burden (background) and The Lone (Hyper)Vigilante
This ongoing and ever-growing installation is comprised of a series of prints made from a rusted steel wing printed on paper. The steel wing was plasma cut to human-scale, then the corrosion process is accelerated for means to print. As more and more prints continue to capture some of the weight of the steel wing, the weight of the actual wing will dissipate, acting as a metaphor of a burden lifted. Theoretically, if the rusting steel wing is printed enough times, the wing will eventually disintegrate. The prints are hung unanchored, so that viewers can have a somewhat intimate interaction with the prints; simply by moving about the installation produces enough air movement to blow the prints around.
One of the series of metal-cast bouquets, Tulipomania is cast bronze.
