Lo! The Fiery Whirlpool!, 2004
Steel, bricks
20' tall, overall dimensions variable

Lo! The Fiery Whirlpool! is a monument to Roosevelt Island's Blackwell Lighthouse and the era when it was built. This sculpture, which takes the form of a Gothic-style steel lighthouse, is another structure in the growing landscape of a fictional forgotten property resurrected through Craycroft’s series of artworks entitled The Palace Project, which includes commemorative sculptures, videos, installations, and paintings.
