For Those We Have Lost
For Those We Have Lost depicts part of an installation created at Wave Hill in the Bronx during a residency right before the mandated shelter-in-place in NYC.
The installation is an offering to ancestors and the spirit realm. Comprised of a series of sculptural pieces made of hypertufa, the piece uses soil and the surrounding landscape to take form. Hypertufa is often used in gardening and is a mixture made of cement, vermiculite and peat moss.
The image, For Those We Have Lost, is a remembrance of those we have lost. “We” meaning humanity and the ones lost are the hundreds of thousands of people lost due to the global pandemic.
