Interweave and Ostinatos 

The original Interweave mural was inspired by jazz improvisation and structured in the manner of ostinati, a continuous repeating rhythm, with variations and elaborations. This formal structural device allowed freedom to experiment within the parameters of the specific site, materials, and artistic intention. While acting as the construction hoarding, the mural was also marked by three-dimensional Roman numerals representing the site’s address. Ostinatos is a set of four compositions extracted from Interweave. It was made using selected portions of the large panels, which featured a series of repeating shapes.
