1984         92"h 82"w 81"d

architect: Jim Falck, ASLA, Metropolitan District Commission, Boston, MA

photographs by Will Howcroft

This portrait considers a man whose media image and private persona were at odds.

The strategy was to create a sculpture addressing distance, perception and "knowing" in a dynamic way.

A layered image, it reads most coherently from afar, becoming more abstracted as the viewer draws near, providing a visual parallel for the character of the man.
