Victory Gardening (2011)
A site-specific work created for Governors Island, a former military fortress that has changed hands among nations over the centuries. As a pathetic political gesture, I circled the perimeter of the island for 3 days, endlessly declaring VICTORY in an evaporating medium. The rolling drum left a repeating trail of text, stenciled in water on the pavement for the public, which evaporated slowly under the sun.Slide →
