Intersections, 2007

Orchestra Place, Detroit

INTERSECTIONS refers to the title of an exhibit in the art gallery inside which is given form on the windows using images based on my anthropomorphic alphabet.  The project itself emerges from the intersection of word and image.  The floating grids are intersections of lines, morphing like the pulse of the city.  In the windows, the mural is at the intersection of architectural order and the unpredictable life of the streets.  The images float in the world staring back from the glass, the world at the intersection of Woodward and MLK, in the heart of Detroit.

 

The poem “Cogs in the Glass Machine” was written for the installation by the MacArthur Prize winning poet Thylias Moss.
