"Brief Boom" at Strathmore

Brief Boom is a sculpture in sandstone and copper wire done in a new textile technique I call zip crochet. I have donated it to the Strathmore Drawing for Art, to be held later this month.

Immediate inspiration for Brief Boom is the fracking boom, but more generally, from watching the success of a species that "succeeds" only by rapidly consuming the ecosystems that sustain it.
