Belvedere

2003
Steel, Astroturf, oil cloth, artificial and real flowers, 18'x5'x5'. Installation, Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, NY.

Sited within an alley of trees surrounded by the modernist architecture of the Purchase campus, "Belvedere" offers a refuge. The urns turned on their sides spilling flowers to the ground serve as benches. They afford a view down the alley to the great lawn. "Belvedere" is both a play on and with nature.
