Public Art Sculpture, 2018
Disruption is an outdoor sculpture commission, designed specifically for the new âme at Meridian Hill Park apartment building in Washington DC.
The Meridian Hill Hotel, now âme, has a storied history of disrupting the status quo. Originally built as a hotel for women arriving in Washington DC to join the war effort and then later replacing plans for a French embassy to become a Howard University dormitory, the historic early International Style building has always supported the advancement of disenfranchised people. Taking inspiration from this history, the sculpture represents structural change. Beginning with a 3-dimensional matrix of lines, the proposed intervention warps itself, while not destroying its structure, to reveal other forms and patterns within.
