dimensions variable

 

Project #2 uses 9 stumps running in a line along the southwest corner of Fort Jay.

 

The island is given a voice and in a moment of self reflection, cites the mysterious qualities setting it apart from the city while acknowledging the changes afoot that will inevitably transform it.

 

The final image are rubbings from the stumps used to create preparatory layouts.
