The vibrant life of the city is celebrated in this dynamic mixed-media installation that engages the architecture of the lobby at Pioneer Academy-PS 307. A 16 foot wide cantilevered red metal boat, a 3D Tim Burtonesque 21 foot tall pink building and 500,000 glass and ceramic tiles energize this theatrical 24 foot x 80 foot wall installation. Five architectural niches invite students and/or visitors to become part of the artwork. The work was realized using state of the art robotic technology, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and a palette of 127 colors. I collaborated with PKSB architects to integrate my design into the total environment. ​ Agency: Commissioned by the Sites for Students Program of the New York City Department of Education and the New York City School Construction Authority ​ Materials: 500,000 glass and ceramic tiles powder coated aluminum 1/8 gauge epoxy enamel paint, marble Location: Pioneer Academy- PS 307 40-20 100th Street Corona, N.Y. 11368 Consultants: Pasanella, Klein, Stolzman, and Berg Architects Aaron Ray-Crichton, technical consultant
