Total of five words

This piece consisted of five large three-dimensional words of various materials. The site was a small Japanese garden made up of three islands that were connected by small footbridges. The lexicon grew out of the recognition of the site as a popular site for wedding photographs. The materials were chosen to enhance the interpretation of the words and their connection with the ceremony of marriage. "the (you), a (man)(s), island(s)" was commissioned by the City of Providence, RI for the Convergence II festival, 1989.
