Response #12

Wood, steel, and cement
7’ x 4’ x 5’

Response #12, is the first of many poetic interpretations of a broken-site. This particular site is located at the end of Jacarandas Street, in Oaxaca Mexico. The street ends with the aqueduct’s wall and a steel staircase on the side which climbs up and across the aqueduct. This staircase was built by the community for easy crossing, and it’s one of many human interventions that metaphorically disrupts the flow of the aqueduct.
