Unbounded is constructed from 6,000 pounds of carefully arranged, hand-chiseled obsidian rocks, all interconnected in a bound, yet flowing textile surface. Not only do the materials used echo the industrial history of the surrounding site (Brooklyn)—from the seafaring tradition of the nearby docks to the piles of rocks that line Brooklyn Bridge Park—but the installation’s illusion of impermanence also prompts the viewer to consider both natural and manmade influences on the area. In both my sculptures and installations, I use my materials—commonplace, yet embedded with history—to highlight the forces shaping us.
