frozen expandable sponges, black felt, and black yarn mounted on a metal signpost, 2’ x 2' x 7', 2020, created during a two-month residency at Sculpture Space
Expandable sponges create the yellow background, layers of black felt constitute the deer shape, and black yarn loops around the black perimeter of this frozen deer-crossing sign. As the yellow sponges absorbed the water from the melting sign they slowly expanded, transforming from thin rectangular sponge-wafers into flat circular disks, which eventually flop off the diamond sign onto the ground. The felt image of the deer would slowly shed off in layers appearing as if the deer symbol was attempting to liberate itself from its context of roads, danger, and traffic.
