Projects: Obstruction Series
We have begun to work on pieces with large scale, immersive installations in mind. The works on this page are both stand alone pieces, as well as parts that make up a larger installation.
As artists, we are inspired to create work with underlying themes of consumption, environmentalism, and connection. We are currently working to create an immersive installation exhibition of sculptural works using repurposed/recycled materials that while aesthetically pleasing, are critiques on normative behavior of indifference.
Consumerism, pollution, and politics converge daily, and the long-term effects remain debated and neglected while the planet and our communities suffer. The exhibition goal would be to raise a deeper understanding and awareness for our everyday impact on our environment while highlighting individual responsibility towards each other and the planet.
These pieces aim to raise an awareness of our dependence on the vast and hidden networks of utility pipes of our modern world. While this infrastructure is necessary for modern societies, it also comes at a significant environmental cost that can cause conflicts between our neighborhoods via natural disasters and human pollution. Drainage pipes clogged with plastic bags, industrial sludge and human debris are common sites in our community. Environmental agencies struggle to maintain these networks and those responsible are left unaccountable.

Our first presentation of these works involved an installation during Fort Lauderdale Art and Design Week 2022, sponsored by a grant from the Broward County Cultural Division.
This exhibition ran at the Kimpton Goodland Hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach January 22-April 1, 2022
Since the debut of this body of work, related pieces in the series have been shown in various exhibitions including:
"Waves" Arts Warehouse Delray Beach, FL
"H2O" Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans LA
(opening 2/3/2023) Studio 18 Arts Complex, Pembroke PInes, FL
Would you like to be involved in the artwork?
Our favorite source for canvas is from from construction sites. If you or someone you know has recently done a repaint or remodel and used canvas dropcloths, we happily take donations and will put them to good use.
