    Exhibition: 50 NY 93

    Construction Temple, 1993

    Wood, steel, rust, industrial orange

    11' x 14' x 12'

    Reuse of industrial vocabulary with the heritage of ancient temples = reminder of the resemblance of industrial architecture such as factories to temples, where gods were worshipped by humans. So were machine gods in factories. The viewer enters the temple -- outside, ruff and industrial -- and inside, treated in industrial orange colors, referring to danger signs at construction zones, as well as to the spiritual color of some eastern philosophies. On ground level, a steel plate, rusted, creates a full cycle of the orange tone.
