I made these models to represent a city. The tallest one is a cage—a skyscraper but also a void. Skyscrapers are landmarks flourishing in every city. However, people hide behind these jails. Three of them are represented as blocks in cities. They have similar shapes but different styles. The small concrete cube is like an abandoned town. It fades into the shadow of cities. All in all, we are dying caterpillars in cocoons.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
