Welcome home. <<prev list next>>

An outdoor sculpture show, somewhere in upstate New York. I walked off of the "grounds" and found an old building site, then abandoned and overgrown with ferns. Somebody had hoped enough to have a well dug and its opening was covered with an upside-down bucket. Like my previous positive/negative mold-forms, I cast a new well-cap out of hydro-cal which read "welcome home" and replaced the bucket with it. The cap was left in place after the exhibition and, for all I know, may still be there.

1993. Cast hydro-cal. Rushmore Festival, Woodbury, NY. Project cannot be repeated. Documentation in the collection of the artist.  

Welcome Home, 1993
