Your Place Your Community
Netting, concrete, 2011
Your Place Your Community was developed in collaboration with K Space Contemporary and the Antonio E. Garcia Arts and Education Center, Corpus Christi, Texas. Through a workshop format, this artwork was developed to explore the relationship of place to an individual’s perception of their role in their local community. The work suggests the lasting importance of the community relationships we build and the individual nature of each person who is a part of it. The intention of this work is for each person to see how they are a part of a larger community and how their contribution to it is vital. Text was contributed by individuals then cast in concrete onto the netted surface.
