first pallet piece

This one started by noticing a bunch of pallets strewn out on a long stretch of grass at the far end of one of the parking lots on campus. This is a pretty simple piece. Basically just a pyramid shape made of the pallets. This was a fun and physical piece to make.

For me this piece has a calmness and serenity about it and an anchored feeling in this spot. This is a fairly large and heavy work but the openings on the sides and tops of the pallets give it a certain lightness and breathability.

I really had a great time with this one. I wish it were still there. More pallet pieces to come…
