GhostWriter

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.

Ghost Writer is a collaboration with Stu Schechter.
