One Fish, Two Fish
 

This is the second project that I assisted Nina Solomon with. This is a Tempe Art in Private Development project, located at 7303 S Kyrene Rd, Tempe, AZ. (Any building in Tempe over a certain size must have a public art component.) The builder was interested in water-themed art on the 435 foot retaining wall in front of the building. To work with a limited budget, we created a tile stream that appears and disappears in various ways along the wall. Ready-made tiles were used on low relief architectural elements we created. They contrast with the hand-made tiles that represent an organic stream of water. Red fish, splashes, and ceramic pipe were added as playful elements. The images show three of the five sections that encompass the entire project.
