"Rhizome" is a site-specific Installation located within a vacant church in Charlotte, NC.
Growing out a series of drawings I created while a resident artist at the McColl Center for Visual Art, Rhizome engages a fascination with the systems at work within growth, decay, and transformation.
The fruition of this work emerged through a collaboration with Architects, Antonio Nevada Martinez, Jennifer Shields and five students of Architecture from UNC Charlotte. Over a period of seven months, we worked to translate the drawings into a three dimensional engaging public installation.
Structural elements also took into consideration elements of time, light, architecture and history, further creating a space in response to activity present within the local environment.
