This site specific multi-media and multi-dimensional work explores the way that lines act as directives, directions, bridges, borders, points of inclusion or exclusion, and demarcations of human action and inaction. Influenced by the work of Teresita Fernandez, Robert Smithson, Richard Serra, and Eva Hesse, it builds upon my past interest in the use of lines in space as part of painting and installation, connecting interior with exterior, symbolic with lived experience. It draws upon the implications, suggested forms, and symbolism of a new bridge and its “shadow bridge”, the ruin of skeletal pylons still in place alongside. Starting with the notion of the bridge form as a singular connecting line, it is a visual inquiry of the dialogue that the “two” bridges represent: a dialogue implied but not as often voiced, including historical conversations about race and power as well as the more current social and political conditions.
