Stage(d), 2004Mixed Media14' × 24' × 20'

Stage(d) takes the form of a stage with an embedded microphone and speaker covered by a Quonset hut. The work serves as a dialogue between historical public sculpture, local architecture and New York City. Sited in the shadow of the former Sohmer Piano Factory (now Adirondack Direct), the stage acts as an amphitheater, and its ramp construction echoes the slanted floors of the factory. Its colors are taken from a line of paint invented by Le Corbusier, one of the grandfathers of modern design and urban planning.
