In a time of social distancing, taking my work outside just made sense. Using a grid-based design process, I'm creating site-specific installations of hundreds of utility marker flags. Over time, the elements of air and water undermine these orderly arrangements: the steel stakes rust, the flags are undone by the breeze.

"Sluice" puts me in mind of water coursing through the landscape, especially when the wind ruffles the flags.

"Water Hole" plays off the meaning of the flag colors in their everyday use on construction sites, where blue signifies "potable water" and white signifies "proposed excavation."
