Penumbra, 2003

Broken umbrellas and thread

Variable height x 72 ft w x 42 ft d

Commissioned by Socrates Sculpture Park, New York

Rescued from the street after windy storms, broken umbrellas have been deconstructed, reassembled and re-introduced to the outdoor elements. Attached to trees, this large canopy of primarily black umbrellas provides a passage of welcome shade in the park as it interacts with the sun and breeze, creating a play of shadows below.
