Bee Brook Grotto
50' x 20’ x 20’
Site-specific immersive installation, Spring Hill, CT.
Grotto installation nested at the top of a repurposed, enameled, cast iron 1940 grain silo and accessed via a 30-foot rise of custom perforated, backlit, curved steel stairs. Grotto: English wheel and hammer-dappled aluminum; fireproof upholstery; hand-blown glass flowers with hand silvered pistils and stamens; LED illuminators and electronics.
A meditative cavern accelerates human sensory moments and destabilizes time. A 24-channel lighting composition unfolds as visitors ascend to a curious gathering place that feels like a shared memory from the future.
