New View 2, 2019
In 2017, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lymph cancer. I was fortunate to receive life saving treatment, and I came through with a new view of life as exhilarating, precarious, and entangled with itself.
New View (2018, 2019) was a series of temporary outdoor art installations consisting of wooden swings suspended very high in trees.
The original New View took place in December of 2018, in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine.
New View 2 was installed for six weeks in Portland’s Deering Oaks Park between April 6 and May 19, 2019 as part of the Portland Temporary Public Art program.
