BRICKHEAD 3 is a ceramic brick sculpture with interactive sound elements. Passersby are often surprised as they encouter the calls of birds and insects, wind and rain that emanate from inside the ceramic blocks. Nature reinhabiting the urban landscape.
Davlan Park is at the gateway of the Massachusetts Avenue Art and Design District. Public art was always part of the concept for both private and public development. It was a question of building the needed coalition and working out a consensus.
Brickhead 3 was originally installed as a featured artwork for the annual NCECA Conferance. A community organization in collaboration with the of Indianapolis found the funds to purchase the artwork as part of a wider program aimed at integrating public art into neighborhoods throughout the city.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
