Created for Heaven and Earth X: Flourish in Carkeek Park, Seattle, Carapace was a site-specific installation that investigated the question of humankind's control of nature, and our role as both protector and destroyer of forests. The piece combined historic photos of the Pacific Northwest’s logging industry with images of contemporary area forest fires. Woven together with camping and construction materials, the installation paralleled the character of Gulliver being tethered down to the ground by Lilliputians in Swift's famous satire, creating a double-edged paean to the giant that once stood here.
Carapace, 2018, approx. 25 x 6 feet; digital prints, wire, steel hoops, mason twine, tent stakes.
