Silk Sculpture Installation

I installed my blue silk sculpture “The Ocean’s Whisper to Me” last week in the newly renovated Park Towne Place Apartments in Philadelphia. It was a new experience for me to be installing artwork in the middle of a construction site. Hard hats were required although maybe not necessary. It was scary though, especially when one artist was leaving and backed into a huge ditch. Luckily there were plenty of large pieces of equipment on hand to pull his truck out of the hole in the road and send him on his merry way. It was a bit surreal and I had to somehow stay focused on the job at hand, coming up with an installation that looked stunning from 3 sides. No problem, right? I was sweating a little near the end, not sure if I liked it but knowing it would take too long to do it all over. Here’s how it looks, kind of cool with a marble wall behind it. I had to Photoshop out all kinds of construction things from the background, you can still see the blue dumpster outside.

Below is my favorite view. The picture is taken from the far corner of the room. Hopefully this view will be noticed through the glass windows as you are approaching the building.
