Description: no. 208 is the site – appropriated and rendered poetic through photographs that gradually reveal different elements of the site. Work no. 209 is a proposal for how the site might be altered – the wood elements representing the Highway and Halsted Street, the fabric a gently undulating landscape draped over these elements, the found objects larger than life sculptures, and the painted abstractions place holders for programs that have yet to be imaged.
