Dome in Flames, 2012

mixed media, 8'L x 8'W x 6'H

In collaboration with Ann Gaizano, installed at The New Wilmington Art Association, Wilmington, DE

 

A geodesic dome made from objects sourced from thrift stores and dollar stores. A response to Buckminster Fuller's notion of utopian architecture, this dome explores utopian aspirations in relationship to capitalism, consumption, and materialism made possible by cheap plastic and disposable objects.
