Bountiful LIC Memorial Carpet, 2007Cement, sand, steel frame2' × 14' × 10'

A tribute to the manufacturing and architectural history of Long Island City, this series of large scale cast cement tiles combine to form a pattern reminiscent of a carpet. The intricate design is made up of forms representing products that were once made in LIC factories, including silk tassels, bread, Model T bodies, and staplers. The neighborhood’s infrastructure and architecture are referenced with railroad tracks, trolley poles, docks, and cement silos.
