These images are of proposals I've been involved in for public art competitions solely or with others.

2.AFTER-BURN-SUNSET (JARDINS DE METIS, QU.) with fellow artist Jon Reed. After-burn, or afterimage, is an optical illusion that refers to an image continuing to appear in one's vision after the exposure to the original image has ceased. By placing our visitor in a situation of prolonged exposure to a monochromatic light, we ensure that their vision will be overcome with its opponent colour. In Baroque fashion, we propose to create a hedge maze of green glass. Engulfing the visitor in a sea of green, allowing them a prismatic experience of reflection and observance of their fellow visitor. As they emerges from this maze of green, their vision will be tinted a rosy pink, creating an After-burn Sunset. This effect will be heightened by a garden of white, with forced perspective toward the horizon, which promises to extend this immersive rose coloured vision. But, not unlike paradise, this effect is fleeting. As one’s eyes readjust, this sunset illusion will be lost.
