Site Visit to Carrie Furnace

I was invited to participate in Alloy Pittsburgh this year at the historic Carrie Furnaces in Rankin, PA. As part of the research process, the selected artists visit the site for a week for inspiration, lectures, and orientation. I look forward to putting together a project based on my inspiration from the site – the counter weight structure used to lift train carts up to dump material out.

Here is an image of me with an initial (small scale) prototype from the research week:

I look forward to sharing the final project in a few months!
