Site-specific, multidisciplinary, outdoor installation created for the meadow at Truro Center for the Arts in Truro, MA. The reflecting pool, locally found objects, and a single pine tree as a sentinel are in symbiosis with the natural landscape. Through shadow, reflection and oxygen exchange, the piece is inclusive of its changing environment and the viewer.
The installation employs found objects discovered on the property and dating back about 150 years: A wire fence piece used to protect the apple orchard, the head of a small pitchfork used to feed the sheep, and an old, twisted iron headboard. The wire fence implies both a place to lie and rest and a sheet under which to crawl.
