redressing

Hamilton College, Clinton, NY
May- October 2006
Astroturf, oilcloth, artificial flowers, concrete, mirrors and pin wheels

Installed on the north campus lawn, “re Dressing” offers a pause in the journey from the academic quad to the living area and eastward down the hill. The oversize urn spills floral pinwheels onto a blanket of blue astro turf. The urn as well as the sky blue concrete bubbles serves as benches, providing a rest in the passage from one point of campus to another. The floral oilcloth, artificial flowers and astro turf juxtapose themselves against the controlled nature of the oaks, elms and weeping cherry planted on the north lawn.
