Fabricated stainless steel, cast and fabricated bronze, urethane paint

 

Woodpile is a playful response to the steep slope of Boren Avenue between John Street and Thomas Street: a large pile-up of stainless steel cylinders comes to rest against a makeshift prop, exposing the potential energy of this piece of topography.  Stacked like cordwood on one side of the entrance stairs, this exaggerated backyard form has been moved to a place of prominence at the front door, transposing an everyday object for the more formal, symbolic marker that might be more commonly placed at the entrance of a building.
