In 2019, the Garrison Art Center, in Garrison, NY sponsored an immersive art experience inspired by the collective, “Meow Wolf” in Santa Fe, NM. A component of the installation was a bridge which connected one element to another. The bridge was constructed of dressed lumber and mouldings, stained, and measuring10 ft. by 12 ft. by 4 ft.
Bridge for Collaborative, Immersive, Art Experience
As a point-of-departure for this structure I used the towers of the George Washington Bridge connecting Manhattan with New Jersey.I made the first tower quite geometric in the mode of a Sol Lewitt structure, but the second tower moved towards chaos and the funky, spontaneity of a Red Grooms. For me, this was a bridge connecting our orderly social/political past to the upheaval and insanity following the 2016 Presidential election.
