Tower Construction, Art at Work
Portland Museum of Art, Portland, OR January 1984
Tower Construction is an Art at Work performance that draws from labor culture to express the choreography and importance of work and the aesthetic of the job site.
A 50' tower that went up and down in a single day, this Art at Work performance/installation explored our urban aesthetic and the choreography of work. As human forms move around and through the geometric structure, a living, kinetic sculpture is created.
Tower Construction was part of the Labor Festival organized by the Oregon AFL-CIO and the Portland Art Museum and supported by the AFL-CIO, Carpenters Union #247, Laborers Local #296, WACO Scaffold and Equipment Co. and Hoffman Foundation
