Sky Dancer

inkjet print, 2015, 22"w x 17"h

My intention with this project was to create something that is visually interesting and thought-provoking without having a significant underlying meaning. The sky dancer is a uniform subject used as a personification documenting his journey through an environment that isn’t typical for an inflatable tube man. Contrasting the subject with the environment gives the image some humor and depth while maintaining the lighthearted intention of the project. This idea was inspired by the music video “Bother” by Les Sins and from Adam Ekberg’s photography series titled Orchestrating the Ordinary.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
