In 2009, I was invited by the Wheaton College Fine Arts Department to build a large-scale public sculpture for the then-vacant Davis Arts Center sculpture garden as an independent study. I chose concrete and found objects as the medium and worked over the course of a semester to research, design and build a piece for the unique space. The sculpture remains a feature of Wheaton's campus to this day, even inspiring a poem by writer-in-residence Charles Coe.
