Multicolor fiberglass driveway markers
4ft H x 12ft W x 76ft L
Austin , Texas
Color Field is an original temporary work commissioned by the City of Austin for AIPP Tempo 2018. The installation consists of fiberglass rods rooted in the earth like an exotic crop. Color Field symbolizes the resilience of the Montopolis community, the cultural bounty that its residents bring, and the ability to come back stronger and more vibrant with each new challenge. Like a crop that keeps giving despite environmental hardships, Color Field is a commentary on seeing the glass half full and hopes to reward audiences with an abundance of color and an element of surprise.

[ 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.
