The Great Indoors, 2008
This piece was made for Robson’s exhibit at the Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas. It is comprised of approximately 15,000 PET bottles cleaned up from the streets of New York. They are airbrushed with tinted polycrylic and riveted together with aluminum rivets. The installation also includes individual sculptures that light up at night via solar powered LEDs, A video with Robson speaking about the piece can be seen on the talks page of this site (click here to view).
The room is 16′ tall x 40 wide’ x 40’wide, which are the approximate dimensions of the piece.”
