Next Steps (Life Carries On)
Painted wood, painted insulation foam, garden hose, reclaimed metal hoop

This work reference toy xylophones with their colored metal bars. In Next Steps, the bars are sometimes painted wood, but sometimes painted insulation foam. From a distance, they all look like a similar material, but up close the deception is very evident. Garden hose is stretched and wrapped around the wooden forms, and the metal hoop from a large outdoor patio table adorns the top of this large structure.
