Heavy Has Debt

For Phoebe Washburn's Faulconer Gallery installation in the summer of 2003, she recycled pieces used from a previous installation. Washburn created a 14-foot tall and 95-foot long curved wall using only small cardboard pieces, drywall screws, and the help of volunteers. To Washburn, her art breaks down the elements of construction to the most basic form. In her words, the process and completed object is so dumb - yet hopefully something amazing emerges from it. 2003.
