"13 Crows" - a Mosaic Bench for Jingletown
This art was for a strangely designed bench. It consisted of two end pieces made of cement and then a cement slab lays from one to the other, creating the seat. One end piece was a cube and the other was more rectangular. My job was to cover 3 of the 4 sides of each end piece. I thought about what a person would see on the ground and chose to design crows - my favorite bird! And the number 13 just goes so well with "Halloweenishness" of crows! I also designed this piece so that the crows are not obvious. This is meant to be difficult to see.. to reflect the way that humans barely look at their environment, therefore making everything "hard to see"!
