Bonnet Nave 2002
Polyester organza and nylon mesh, aluminum armature 140" x 100" x 129"
Evolving from a 2001 series called "Rain Bonnets", this modest household item spawned leaps of association about the shape of those old rain bonnets: how they look so much like a proscenium arch; how they were part shelter and part accessory how something as simple as a head covering can define a moment or a monument in time. Exploding the traditional idea, this is a drastically super sized version in a usable yet theatrical way.
