In Wishing Well, several stainless steel sinks are welded together and filled with sudsy water to re-imagine the public fountain in a new form. Pedestrians, shoppers and restaurant workers are invited to toss their pocket change into the sinks and make a wish. Placed at the entrance of a busy New York City restaurant, the piece utilizes industrial materials from the Bowery and reveals an often unseen element of the restaurant experience. The artist offers a link to an environment so familiar to the vast number of immigrants working in the kitchens of New York’s restaurants. Wishing Well is a reminder of the city’s long history of immigrants pursuing the American Dream and the hard work such a dream entails—a common tale in the history of the Bowery.

This site-specific project at MoMA QNS creates an abstract portrait of the museum’s staff with work clothes donated by its employees. By deconstructing the clothes into two parts—the cut-outs and the seams—the artist fashioned a mural and corresponding hanging sculpture that responded to the architecture of the space. In its fragmentation of the garments—and by proxy, the body—the piece visually breaks down the museum’s hierarchical structure, as the shirt of a janitor occupies the same space as that of the museum’s director.

In Stepping Stones, hundreds of inverted pots and pans create a unique topography of used cookware that spreads across the landscape.  Filled with cement and literally anchored into the ground with metal spikes, these common materials of both domestic life and commercial kitchens are transformed by being inserted into a new setting.  When placed outdoors, these incredibly durable objects are no longer subjected to the extreme heat of a stove.  Rather, through their physical interaction with nature and passersby, these metal vessels become active, acoustic surfaces.
