Who are You? - 8' x 80' x 1/2" - Laminated wood.

As part of the "Big Dig" Central Artery / Tunnel Project in Boston, Massachusetts a series of panels entitled "Who are You ?" were installed on Atlantic Avenue. The purpose of this artwork was to provide pedestrians a visual connection to the construction site; and provide an Artwork with which the public can interact.

The figure/symbols that make up "Who are You?" are not meant to be looked at as objects but rather to be seen in comparison with pedestrians walking by. In making these comparisons one is struck by the similarities and differences of passersby. The symbol figures present psychological as well as physical comparisons.
