Overview

166.5”L x 74.25” H x 2 ½”D (average of jagged edges). Postage stamps on aluminum.
L'Enfant Plaza, Washington, D.C.

Goals

The project goal was to create a work of art that was striking from a distance and continued to engage people as they moved closer. Bold color was used to transform the lobby but postage stamps were used to draw people closer, pique their interest.

Process

I pride myself on strong communication throughout the commission process. To start the project, several concepts were created for the client’s review. During fabrication, weekly updates were sent to the art consultant. As the installation date grew near, the installation team was briefed so their installation would go smoothly.
