Deco-ys, Redeployed, 2014

Hunters decoys, OneShot sign enamel, NovaColor, cedar, mounting hardware, 180" x 72" x 72"


192 hand painted decoys, emblazoned with art deco patterns mounted in a series of graduated wooden architectural elements to create a deco-appropriate ‘nest’ for the native patterend ducks. The 16 elements were installed as a corner embellishment on and atop one of the oft-overlooked pump station buildings on festival grounds, mimicing art deco top moldings from regional architecture.

Commissioned by the City of Salina, Salina Arts and Humanities Artist-In-Action for the Smoky Hill River Festival.
