Site_Specific 2013, Gordon Froud residency. The geodesic, HI virus sculpture was designed to tight parameters, requiring no wood glue or screws. It is held together entirely by wooden connectors and pins. The imposing sphere attracted a lot of attention, particularly when constructed on site with observers becoming willing participants in its construction.
