Overview

2002 Baltimore, MD 10’ x 4’ x 10’ each (x5) stainless steel
Designed, fabricated, and installed this five-part sculpture which highlights the entrance to Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School in East Baltimore. The scale of the stainless steel elements seems larger than life, enlarged to a size which allows the installation to be interactive. In working with the building engineer, the pieces are able to hover over the entrance as students, faculty and visitors to pass beneath them every day.
