public project / Pasadena, CA / 2018
Shipwreck was a collaborative artwork in the form of an evolving reconstructed 1954 Dorsett cruiser boat. Elements such as the motor, control panel, radio signals, treasure chest and life buoys were designed with public interpretation and feedback. A series of on and off-site workshops and community events invited participants to create various components of the wreck. Based on the idea of a ship lost somewhere in a portal to Atlantis as a greater metaphor for our societal ills and hopes, the project aimed, over several months, to generate conversation and optimism through imaginative play and music.
