Palatine Burial Installation
Roma, American academy, 1996 - first prize
American Academy Rome, Italy. The final stage of the Palatine Burial project was an installation in the cryptoporticus of the American Academy in Rome. A filigree composed of interlinking shaped stainless steel wire elements was installed within the vaults of the massive masonry. This construction formed a hybrid grotto. Barbed details within each link caused the mass to behave like a swarm.
