Bough Cairn

A site-specific construction, on indefinite loan to The Studio Gallery, Armonk, New York.

The Old Croton Aqueduct Project

The OCA project was carried out for the "Outside/In" show I curated at the Exchange Gallery in White Plains, New York in 2004. I constructed a series of cairns along the route of the aqueduct in Westchester County New York, documented them, and made a web-based georeferenced photo archive to explore the works from the gallery. The photos were also displayed along the line of a sculpture representing the aqueduct.

Three cairns were displayed in the gallery, displayed along side a computer work "Circumnavigation".

Circumnavigation, 2004

Cairn translations

Cairn translations are reconstructions of a single cairn in multiple locations. The same stones are reassembled in different places, with subtly different configurations, highlighting the different resonances a cairn has with its surroundings and playing with our expectations of inertia and stasis.
