Rush Docks

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

"Rush Docks" was inspired by the way water weathers and warps harbor docks over time. Disposed cedar fences from a nearby loading dock add an industrial quality giving a hint to the hard work our great cities and harbors have endured. The process of creating "Rush Docks" I call "Fence Forming." it's stacking multiple same dimension cedar fences into unimaginable structural forms. The viewer should feel the weight and pressure of the work but recognize the movement of the material and appreciate the organized euphoria of the piece.

Venue & Connection Information

"Fence Forming" can be build around any environment. Indoor work will be kept dry and challenges the space around it. Outdoor work is the most efficient when stacked and spun flat "table top" like. all installation are heavily screwed together to secure safety and the weight of the mass is always enough to stay solid. All works can be assembled in a matter of a few hours and disassembled in half the time it took to install. the possibilities are endless in the arrangement, shape and form of this material. just show me the spot and what you have in mind and i can make it happen
