Bones are simulated by hand pulled clay like extrusions, each unique, each a prayer for a victim of abuse. This image is from 'THE BRIDGE', an installation in the Gulf at Galveston, Texas.
THE BRIDGE consists of approximately 100 bone simulations resting on a wire mesh support in the waters of the Gulf in Galveston Bay.
BONE LABYRINTH AT ROTHKO CHAPEL, HOUSTON, TEXAS.
Approx. 500 bone simulations placed on a carpet on the plaza for meditative walking, with a MENDING CIRLCE in the center for dedication.
