I have enjoyed the opportunity to use the construction phase of a sculpture as a forum to discuss art ideas and demonstrate the viability of contemporary art making. By declaring my intentions through hard work and open conversations and by blending my materials with elements of the site in a provocative way, I negotiate a place for my sculpture -- perhaps art making in general -- with the regulars who use that space.
