10 x 20 x 2 feet
The sculptures are constructed by threading aluminum wire through the centers of plastic bottle caps and small plastic objects. These parts are grouped in a repetition of color patterns along loopy armatures of flexible wire. Ends of the wire are then mounted directly into the walls creating a grouping of tensile structures.
