TITLE: Riding the Rails
DATE: 2013
MEDIUM: 14K gold leaf, imitation gold leaf, found railroad tie, acrylic
DIMENSIONS/RUN TIME: 10″ x 10″
DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: An inversion of the golden spike that connected the Union and Central Pacific in 1869, I imagine this piece as if the gold has fallen away and left behind the bones of the promise of connection and a mass-transit system. Can we regain that connection?
