Department of Power and Light

The Department of Power and Light was a tribute in effigy to power stations around the Great Lakes. I learned much from leading a project involving physical-world concepts like construction, transportation, and safety. I was fortunate to have the guidance of builders and designers to bring the artistic vision to fruition. Then we burned it.
