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. Made in response to Buckminster Fuller's notion of utopian architecture, the work explores utopian aspirations in relationship to capitalism, consumption, and materialism made possible by cheap plastic and disposable objects.
