twisted steel beams, sand-cast military scrap bronze

Highly textured bronze cast from re-cycled USA military scrap wraps around twisted steel beams that were once useful geometric structural steel. The bronze glistens golden in the sun and the curving steel beams stretch out exploring new directions. The organic shaping of materials echoes the planted, garden context as metaphor for the new green development of the South Bronx.
