Cloak
Steel, inner tubes
72" x 180" x 120"
2001

 

Cloak was built for the 2001 Piccolo Spoleto Festival. It was conceived for an exhibition on the grounds of the Old City Jail, which had temporarily been converted into a contemporary art exhibition space. The three structures range in height from 4' to 6'4" and viewers can stand inside them. My intention was for viewers to experience the same feeling of protection and confinement that the Old Jail inspires.
