1994         36' h 8' w 10' d

collaboration with Stuart Schechter
material: cast metal/stainless cable
architect: Joseph Powell & Associates, Philadelphia, PA
project team: Chris Taylor, Denise Ting, Chris Nardone, Peter Andruchow, Phil Chapnick
site: Evanston Public Library, Evanston, IL

photographs by Will Howcroft

On a formal level, "Ghost Writer" can be seen as a three-dimensional Pointillist structure. Conceptually, the artwork is a "portrait" of imagination and learning, a metaphor for the creative process.

Over 3,000 varied cast metal forms are precisely located on 900 descending cables. Each element is a sculpture in itself; en masse they articulate a large head within an abstract spiral form.

The head is comprised of 1,500 silver letters, some of which align to spell out words.
