Transforming Tutt

Ephemeral mural, Colorado Springs, CO, USA: 8 x 30 M, 2004 

Transforming Tutt, was an intervention of 18 painted burlap banners on the side of Tutt library on the Colorado College campus. The gestural forms and flow of air across the burlap acted to dissolve Tutt’s blocky cement architecture into the surrounding flow of trees, mountains, water, shadows, and wind.
