Client: Socrates Sculpture Park
Location: Long Island City, NY, United States
Completion date: 2014
Artwork budget: $8,000
Materials: wood, concrete and steel mesh. Recycled plywood is used as an armature and is then covered roofing paper, steel mesh and concrete. The base of the form is 6 feet in diameter and stands 16 feet high.
The Large Horn is a biodynamic form intended to represent the outgrowth of a fertile space.
The commission was through an open call at Socrates Sculpture Park emerging artist program. The theme was inspired by the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. Selected artist were given $5000 to realize a project in the park. I was able to raise and additional $3000 by intimating a kickstarter campaign.
On opening night we projected video on to the horn, animating the form against the background of the NYC skyline.
