Invisible Arsenal is a site-specific work made for a retired military post in Columbus, Ohio. To create this work, I began taking daily walks on the site and collecting photographs of different textures, colors, patterns, and marks that stood while I wandered. I began thinking about the history of the site in relation to the amount of weaponry that used to be stored there. What can I not see from the past? Invisibility becomes an unsuspecting weapon. It protects and destroys simultaneously.
In response, I created a wooden frame that mimicked the scale and architecture of old barracks buildings that were collapsing on the campus. I covered this structure in a handprinted semi-transparent cloth I made by piecing together iron transfers of my photographs in a camouflage pattern. I displayed this work both in a gallery space and on-site as deconstructed architectural banners, floating through the landscape and dissolving into space.
