This project was made possible by a grant from the Miami-Dade Parks and Recreations Department. Located at A.D Barnes park on the Northeast corner of Bird rd and 72nd Avenue, this piece will be on exhibit until May 2010.
Babylon is not an exact place, but rather a system of self-absorbed individuals who worship idols and live decadent lifestyles at the expense of the poor. The word “conserve” is meant to address our out of control consumption of natural resources. The functioning birds nest represents life continuing on after us. Also as a tribute to all of those suffering from the recent earthquake disasters, hopefully this work will remind viewers how fortunate we are.
This grant was awarded to five local Artist’s to create original works in five different parks throughout Miami-Dade county. One goal of the project was to offer the Artist an opportunity to expand beyond the realm of their usual medium.
