OPEN CHANNEL FLOW

steel, water, hand-pump, light beacons
60’ x 33’ x 45'
2009
Sabine Water Pump Station and Buffalo Bayou Park, Houston, Texas
City of Houston Art Collection

Partly located inside the Houston Sabine Water Pump Station fence and partly outside the fence in Buffalo Bayou Park (and a few hundred feet from the public skateboard park) Open Channel Flow mimics in style and color much, much smaller structures that dot the Pump Station landscape. By using the stainless steel hand-pump one can experience a refreshing “shower” as water rains down from the showerhead 25 feet above. Simultaneously, and as a result of pumping water through the pipes, yellow and blue beacons on top of the 60-foot structure flash, signaling people as far away as downtown that another person has doused themselves with a refreshing, albeit very brief, shower.


SIXTY WEAK KNEES

plywood, aircraft cable, rubber, paint
Space 3,000 sq. ft.
2004-5
Arthouse, Austin, Texas

Description: Installation for “Lounge!”--a temporary forum for programs and discussions regarding the blurring of art, architecture and design in modern and contemporary culture There were 30 single chairs, 15 double chairs and 4 tables. There were two configurations for the chairs and tables: one when the space functioned as a lounge and another when there were movies, lectures or performances. For these events the largest table was tilted vertically such that the bottom of the table became a movie screen. Chairs would be unhooked from the ceiling and re-hooked on different eyehooks to increase the number of seats that could view the movie screen.
