Franconia Boat Tower

Douglas fir, steel, four vintage boats

Artist Statement

My aim is to develop a sculptural site with a hybridic combination of Midwestern found boats in dry dock as a potential public art. I am particularly interested in creating and curating a sculptural boat tower site within the often hidden oculi of prairie of cornfield pathways and using them as pivotal axis points for asymmetrical viewing.
