Little Stacy Park, 1400 Alameda Dr., Austin, Texas, 78704
Date:  2013, 2014
Placement:  parks (grounds)
Artwork Type:  sculpture (visual work)
Material:  plastic (organic material), wire, LEDs, solar cells
Description:  Exploding the forms that I developed in earlier wall installations into a sculpture form at a different scale, the undulating forms reference the water that is so scarce in this region. Three related sculptures make up the installation. They are visible along the walking path in Little Stacey Park from Monroe to Annie Street along Eastside Drive. Made of plastic embedded with solar powered LEDs the sculpture glows blue in the evening for a different experience of the piece.
