    Steel reinforced concrete

    12' x 5' x 4'

    "Etherieal Concrete Flasher" was conceived as the union of three four-foot high flashers. I brought the trio to Socrates Sculpture Park to occupy a spot of ground overlooking the East River. The feeling was romantic. The reality was too private. I was convinced by Mark to build a work that would be vandal-proof. The scale of the work was greater than I ever before managed. Ennrico organized all the help and materials I needed. I made a model of the armature. Scott, Paul and Floris helped me bend the steel and weld it to a six-foot square steel plate. I then molded and tied expanded wire lath. Lizette mixed concrete in a wheelbarrow and I trowled and massaged it into the reinforcement. "Ethereal Concrete Flasher" is now overlooking people passing through on 43rd Street betweek 9th and 10th Avenues.
