A freedom experiment in the Andrew Goldsworthy line

This installation was built at Big Bend, on the banks of the Rio Grande rives, in late February of 2010.  It draws inspiration from the work of Andrew Goldsworthy, incorporating orange fabric, as the symbol of the movement to end globals slavery.  Unlike Goldsworhty’s art though, which remains in place at the mercy of the elements, the Ring of Freedom was to remain intact only for as long as I stayed there.  By the end of my stay there, the removal of the orange fabric would partially bring down the Ring.

There was an element of dependency on nature, and its cycles, though.  Creeping shadows were part of the project, and as the photos show, they disappear as the sun sinks behind the cliffs on the west bank of the Rio Grande.
