"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 three dimensionally into an active and 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.
