Plaster

The five plaster sculptures in this piece take on forms inspired by elements of urban infrastructure including a crushed metal shutter door, a parking barrier structure seen in Madrid, and a form based on the pedestrian ramps that lead to crosswalks on New York City sidewalks. Each large piece was made from a combination of plaster casting and historic methods for running cornice molds, where a template for the profile is created and used to create the plaster structure from scratch. Set upon a tennis court, the objects take on lives in a set that gestures to ideas of choreography, movement, and staging, highlighting their active role in the movement an mobility of urban life.
