...stand by... (2001)

This work was one in a set of outdoor installations that were born out of a curiosity about how the engagement of the spectator, and the overall image, would change if the work was taken out of the gallery and onto the street.  Content remained focused on identity and space but was now expanded to address the social identity of local residents and how it was formed by specific geographic conditions in the immediate environment.  "...stand by..." was created for rainy nights in Portland, Oregon.
