St. Francis. Circulation Drawing, 2015, Cement, plexiglass, ink, water, plastic tubing, submersible pump,  44” x 19” x .85”

St Frances is a fountain sculpture named after a Los Angeles’ failed dam. The plexi-glass pedestal functions as the container for the blue ink, which is circulated through the sculpture. The ink alludes to the basic color with which bodies of water are commonly represented as well as ink used for architectural blueprints. The ink runs through a groove made with a finger on top of the cement slab sitting on top of the pedestal. The looping doodle of the cement drawing is based on the tire marks of a skidding motorcycle captured in a photograph I took during my first visit to LA.
