Artist Statement

Whiteout is an interactive installation that encourages users to engage with the view offered on the Atlanta BeltLine. The viewing portal draws the nebulous two-dimensional pieces into a silhouette of the city skyline. The pieces therefore function as intentional two-dimensional images when viewed at certain vantage points, as well as an abstract sculpture garden.
