I was invited by the Brooklyn Arts Council to install site-responsive work in their office and gallery spaces. This piece incorporated wall drawing and painting, quilting pins, embroidered text, hand formed and painted silk constructions, mono-filament, glue and thread into the public spaces. An awareness and sensitivity as to how the space flowed and was used became integral to the composition of the work. Over the course of six months, I would revisit the space adding to the piece so that it grew and expanded in an organic fashion. Individuals experiences this work by walking under and through it. The accumulation of shapes created by light and shadow were integral components of the work.
