This work was part of the Terrain Biennial satellite exhibition in the Enos Park neighborhood of Springfield, Illinois. Curators and artists worked with homeowners to make artwork outside the homes. My installation site was an abandoned house. At first, neighbors were disappointed that I was not renovating the house. As they watched the installation progress, they became more excited about the way the artwork activated the facade of the house.
