Out on a Limb

June 2016

Constantly inspired by the human form, I have chosen these four flags to help transform the building into a figure. I’ve always enjoyed having to find the humanity present within my work, regardless of it’s form. Like most people, I find myself humanizing things, whether it’s pets, a rock or anything else. It’s a way of reaching for what is the largest effort in our world, which is to understand each other. By giving Lillstreet arms and legs, I hope to be giving the building life. These human additions to our workspace are recognizable forms which have two sides: one colorful and graphic, the other realistic.
