Portrait of Carmen
Portrait of Carmen (2006)
(13’ W x 8’H) Materials: Large-format digital photographic banner.
This banner was commissioned as one of 10 artist/resident collaborations in “Northwest Portraits,” a year-long show presented by NewTown focusing on the interesting and diverse residents of Northwest Pasadena. It was mounted on the façade of the Armory Center Northwest for four weeks. As a resident of Northwest Pasadena myself, I selected my neighbor Carmen as my collaborator. The site was located on a busy street without stop signs or signals. My intention was to get a brief and simple concept across to drivers traveling past at 35 mph.
