I was piling up tires with Shirel (thanks for the help!) so that we can smoothly get them out of the studio for my move tomorrow!!
PVC pipes are all painted, and I am applying resin for a shiny finish and also to protect them better, from the weather and interaction. Inside they will have different materials that I have already started ordering and collecting..
I have finished painting all the tires. I keep piling them and combining them in different ways, to see how they interact withing each other and get inspired for the on-site installation. I also had the opportunity to have friends and people visit my studio (for Open Studios at the Elizabeth Foundation) so got a sense of scale and interaction that people add to the work.
