PUBLIC ARTWORK

Getting art outside of the studio and galleries and out in the public realm is a wonderful way to spur dialogue and expand enjoyment of the arts. Below is a selection of my public art projects.

HEAVEN & EARTH VI: SKYFEEDER

Concentric rings of mirrors reflect the sky and viewers together in nature, celebrating our interconnections. The mythic number 331 mirrors symbolize harmony and balance.


This temporary installation was located at Carkeek Park as part of the 2014 Heaven & Earth: As Above, So Below Exhibit with the Seattle Center on Contemporary Art in cooperation with the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation.
