Bonfire (1998)

Bonfire
Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, Massachusetts
Tape Art Crew: Erica Duthie, Struan Ashby, Michael Townsend

Here a group of people are cleansing themselves of earthly possesions in a joyful bonfire. We are experimenting with drawing large distorted shadows on the ground to give the scene a greater sense of depth.

Hygia
Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, Massachusetts

At 52,000 sqare feet (a city block), this is the largest single Tape Art mural we have ever made. We wrapped the entire Worcester Art Museum in a narrative that told an imagined origin story of one of the museum's statues. As viewers followed the mural around the museum they followed the Hygia statue from its creation through 2,000 years worth of made-up history (including it being sold, stolen, broken, and taken as war booty) and finally to its resting place within the museum itself.

The project took five weeks and was up for five minutes in its completed state before being removed.
