I'm working out the design for the public art installation that will be happening at Brandeis for the Leonard Bernstein Creative Arts Weekend at the end of April. The project will have very large floating protozoan-like abstractions... created using the techniques of Irish crochet but with wire, foam pipe insulators and stripped fabric that is painted and sealed with acrylic. The plan is to create a gracefully kinetic composition in the pond between the three chapels that references the humanity of a world order in flux.
I will be meeting with the building and grounds department at Brandeis next week and have been testing small models for buoyancy in my tub with great success!
