Sometimes we find ourselves moved to act. The December 2, 2016 fire that destroyed the Ghost Ship artists’ collective in Oakland, California led to the making of this installation, housed in the corner display window of Hoquiam’s LaVogues Building from January 20 to April 25, 2017.
Alight in Winter is dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in that fire.
Thirty-six paper forms suspended over a bed of ash. At night, battery-operated tea lights illuminate the work.
