Gathering Deck from a Rural Landscape, 1987Wood, paint10'6" × 39' × 39'

Gathering Deck is derived from my childhood experiences around architecture of the rural midwest (cattle chutes, mining shafts and corrals), combined with a three dimensionalization of a make-believe board game. Set in an industrial and urban environment, the sculpture is a playful structure making reference to movement and the act of gathering as well as distributing materials, people and ideas.
