Wreck | 2008

Set inside the last watertight compartment of a recently sunk ore boat resting at the bottom of Lake Superior, Wreck explores the depths of physical and psychological endurance and human fortitude in the face of impending and inevitable destruction. The piece plunges towards the ragged edge of movement and stamina as it seeks the physical event horizon where violence and cooperation, obsession and compassion and the ultimate question of how we will enter death at the edge of the Abyss.
