"Bronx: Heart, Homeland", 2015 (installation view)

Stainless steel, 5’1 1⁄2” x 6’ 4 1⁄2”, commissioned by MTA Arts and Design.

Location: Castle Hill Subway Station, Bronx, NY

Based on the concept of past to present, encompassing the interplay of place, home, culture and identity, Bronx: Heart, Homeland depicts silhouetted images of people living in the urban neighborhood of the Bronx. The eight black stainless steel units, uniquely integrated within the station environment to created a narrative associated with the everyday life of in the neighborhood--a life, for the most, that revolves around the subway. The focal points of connections are linked between the home and heart, both literally and metaphorically. each silhouetted representation is displayed in different positions: skateboarding, selling books, walking on the street and taking pathways to the station. Man-made fragments of the 20th and 21st century of the Bronx history are shown, such as the subways line, networks, electricity cables, telephone poles and other elements. The sculptures are imbued with the visible presence not only for those who built them but for those here today, tomorrow and beyond.

"A House is not a home", 2013

"A House is not a home", 2013

Banner, ARTIUM, Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art. Vitoria (Spain)

A house is not a home deals with the concept of inhabitable place or space and its various realities. It expresses our concept of home, how we live and feel it, and at the same time also examines the constant political, economic and social changes of living space and the way we inhabit it.

In short, it explores the differences and similarities between a house and a home and the emotional relationship to material and immaterial within the context of an established, nomadic society.

"Between The Lines", 2011

"Between The Lines", 2011

Various PVC pipes, rope, and enamel, dimensions 15 ft. x 50 ft x 95 ft. approx. 

Socrates Sculpture Park, New York, NY

This sculpture playfully reinterprets the popular perspective scheme of a street lined with telephone poles disappearing in the horizon. Rather than receding in space through progressively reducing color density, height, and thickness, these poles and hanging lines are placed seemingly at random throughout the center of the park, confusing the scale and depth of both the interior Park and exterior skyline.
