I-Park Passage
Visual Arts/Installation
I-Park Passage is an invitation to journey into the landscape, and serves as a contemplative environment, embodying a reverence for nature and history. For me, the most exciting element was site—the passage through the architectural form into the flowing green meadow. This work references ideas I have been exploring for many years. All the materials are renewable (except the steel frame I brought with me), and were harvested from the area. The thatching material is from a non-native invasive phragmites.
