Process for sculpture “the aftermath”

“The Aftermath” is made from found materials (wood, roots, tie wire, lath, rocks, bulldozer arm) all from a clear cut site at Moss Rock Preserve in Hoover, AL, with the exception of the lath which is from a house being gutted in Southside. The sculpture explores the aftermath of the destruction before the creation of something. (in this case, it is a strip mall in the woods) The wood was from fallen trees, the roots dug up from the ground, the rocks red Alabama sandstone not found on the surface of the forest, but dug up. It is the effects of the destruction – speaking to the fiery dilemma of what is worth preserving – and the moral aspect of suburban sprawl.
