Revenant, 2007

#2 harvested plastic, 18’L x 7’H x 3’W

Revenant was created for a two person exhibition with Zero Higashida, for the Bank of Japan in Hiroshima, one of the few buildings to survive the atomic blast. The 18 foot bridge has a dredging crane on one end, which is attached by looping chains to a McMansion on the other end.  A slum colony with a satellite dish clings to the underside of the McMansion. The bridge structure is based on the Forth Bridge, an innovation in engineering at the dawn of the 20th century.
