Shipwrecked in Nebraska, 1998, 18 x 50 feet. Collaboration with the students of Hastings College in memory of Dr. William Hicks. Blue jeans were collected on campus and assembled on the lawn in front of the art department. Three art students lead teams in composing and stitching the multiple elements together observing the positive and negative spaces, light and dark tonalities and irregularities of the contours. The resulting work was hoisted to the ceiling of the student union for homecoming week-end.
