The motif for this piece was inspired by a graphic illustration of data configurations described in a NYT article. While there was an overall structure, the interior construction proceeded intuitively, each bar in the screen was made in response to the preceding while still considering the overall balance of the piece. Powder coating is a protective paint similar to an auto-body surface that protects the steel from rust. “Data” can be installed outdoors vertically as a gate or, horizontally as a space or room divider. I can also use this design as a template for a custom work of art.
