I wanted to create something special here. A multi-dimensional piece to examine and talk about awhile. And I wanted it made entirely of materials from New Orleans.
It started with a photo.
This installation consisted of 10 panels, 8 ft. x 2 ft.
Each panel had to be cut, primed, painted, and beaded and beaned.
Each panel took about 30 hours.
I drove to New Orleans twice for new materials.
