Artist Statement

Atlanta Totems: Illegal signs, street spam, and “litter on a stick” are recycled into Atlanta Totems. These were displayed in Reynoldstown along the Atlanta BeltLine.

Meandering Fence: Geometric “Op-Art” style patterns were created by volunteers along this railroad-tie inspired fence. The fences were displayed along the path leading into the corridor across from Gordon White Park in southwest Atlanta.
