Public Art Installation and Reception Desk
95 Morton Street, New York City (NY)
I constructed a curvilinear wall and art installation to welcome visitors into the lobby space, leading to a reception desk I made of black concrete. Along the wall, plaster castings of local manhole covers range in size and shape, due to the original uses of each cover. The castings are pigmented using the glass, metal, sand, tar, rocks, plastic and other items I collected while taking their original impressions. Some were made from covers dating from the 1800s which have since been paved over or removed by the city.

Starbucks commissioned this 8-foot by 15-foot concrete mural for their New York City flagship store located in Union Square.I created the topographic composition using castings of original manhole covers from the streets of New York City along with commuters’ to-go containers. Each panel is pigmented using glass, metal, sand, tar, rocks, plastic and other items collected while working in the city.
