what goes around comes around

2007, 65' x 25' x 16', Plastic debris, tinted polycrylic and hardware

Commissioned by Merrill Lynch (now Bank of America) for their corporate HQ in Hopewell, NJ., This piece is made from beverage bottles taken from the recycling bins of employees there.  It is intended to illustrate connectivity and the reciprocal nature of matter and energy, while raising awareness about human impacts on the environment and our discreet power as consumers. It is suspended 4 stories up from 95 hang points. The bottom two images show the installation process with my husband in the lift, as well as part of the fabrication process in our old studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, with our daughter Ona in the baby swing.
