Public Art: Indoor Installations

Lift, 2017
Nashville International Airport, Nashville, Tennessee

Concourse C
March 2017 - January 2018
Donated CD and DVD discs, Monofilament, Cable ties, Aluminum, Stainless steel cable, and hardware.

Titled Lift, this installation has been designed for the skylights at the Nashville International Airport.  Inspired by landfills and black holes, the form will be similar to looking across a flat bed of water with a whirlpool drawing all the surrounding water into itself; however, the emphasis of this sculpture would be a vortex that is pulling all the memory discs upward like a black hole in space. 

 

 

Event Horizons, 2016
Installed at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis, Indiana
March 2016 - May 2017

This public art installation is part of the exhibition titled, 200 Years of Indiana Art: A Cultural Legacy.  This exhibition features original works of art spanning the state’s 200 year history including contemporary.  For this exhibition, I designed and created a site-specific installation for the Indiana State Museum entryway comprised of 12,000 used CD’s and DVD’s with color changing LED lights. Titled Event Horizons, this installation covers 15 ft H x 60 ft L west wall on the first floor.

 Titled: DECADE, This installation was part of a special group exhibition and series of site projects throughout the city.  In celebration of 516 ARTS 10th anniversary, ten artists were selected from the artists who have exhibited at 516 ARTS during the past ten years. I was honored to be one of the artists in this group exhibition and series of off-site projects draws from the diverse local, national and international artists they have worked with since 516 ARTS opened. 

 

Amplitude, 2015
Permanent installation in the  South Bend Museum of Art and Century Center, South Bend, Indiana
Donated CD and DVD discs, Monofilament, Cable ties, Aluminum, Stainless steel cable, and hardware.

Based on my installation of Tesseracts at the Biennial 27,  the Curatorial Committee of the South Bend Museum of Art commissioned a permanent, site-specific CD installation for the corridor of the Century Center connecting the Warner and Carmichael Galleries.  Similar to Dual Wielding, this suspended sculpture has two horns; however, instead of irrigation tubing and ratchet tie downs, this CD installation has an aluminum skeleton and is supported by stainless steel cables.
