Palatine Burial Installation

American Academy

Rome, IT - 1996

The final stage of the Palatine Burial project was an installation in the cryptoporticus of the American Academy in Rome. A filigree composed of interlinking shaped stainless steel wire elements was installed within the vaults of the massive masonry. This construction formed a hybrid grotto. Barbed details within each link caused the mass to behave like a swarm.

The work was on display at the American Academy Rome, Italy.
