Pining. 2007. Painted plaster, pine cones. 7' x 2' x 2'

Commissioned by Pinellas County Cultural Affairs, Wild Life Sculpture Search is a public project of six sculpture installations integrated into a nature trail at Boca Ciega Millennium Park in Seminole, Florida. The imagery and placement of the sculptures were designed to intensify awareness about the effects of human impact on the natural environment. Made primarily of plaster and plant matter, the sculptures were designed to gradually change and decompose over time. A book and a video were created to document the evolution of this temporal project. As the park's artist-in-residence, I further involved the community by giving guided walks and sculpture workshops throughout 2007.
