Site: The site of the restaurant Marche, the current site of the restaurant Nelcotte, and the streets of the surrounding West Loop neighborhood
Medium: detritus and acrylic on glass
Date: Spring 2013
Description: The curved glass from the windows once serving as their facade and detritus from the Westloop neighborhood that surrounds were the materials used for the creation of this work. I was motivated by a desire to salvage valuable artifacts and allow these artifacts to "see" elements of the surrounding context that would otherwise be invisible.
