Site Specific Works

1998-2002

These works were made using a technique of grass painting used to mark the pitch for televised sports events. Anamorphic perspective is employed to create the illusion of 3-dimensions when the work is viewed from a prescribed height and distance.

 

Spirit I and II were commissioned for the 25th Sao Paulo Bienal in 2002.
