    Ghost Siege, 2009

    Steel, nylon, sound

    22' x '63 x 63'

    A site specific installation/formation of ghost flags comprised of 50 strategically located flag sculptures, made from reflective silver fabric, and steel flag poles. The formation reflects sunlight and appears “ghostly” at night, signaling the “siege” of the park. The flags have no markings or signifiers of conquest or elements of communication. Instead, the flags serve notice that the location has been conquered by time -- and in this way relate both to the artist's body of work regarding ghosts of Manifest Destiny and the experience of the visitor within the work.
