Floating World

Denver Botanic Gardens

What the artist wanted to convey with the mix of sculptures was the "convergence of aquatic botany with intuitively engineered architecture." Each piece had to follow its own unique patterning, and at the same time, inhabit this floating world.

The project was executed within a nine month period. The majority of the sculptures were made in a warehouse in the Gowanus, Brooklyn, then trucked out to Denver. The largest piece in the Monet Pond, titled "Nest", along with a few other site responsive pieces, were built then and there. The documentation of the project, from conception to onsite installation, can be viewed here.
