Blueberry for My Mom 2016
Presented by the Portland Museum of Modern Art as part of their Houseguest Residency in Pioneer Square.
This public sculpture was created as an homage to my mom who identifies strongly with her "Mainer" identity and finds refuge in the solitary activity of picking blueberries. When I was 17, I visited the building below with my grandma, and that memory inspired me to make the largest blueberry I could. The poem painted on rocks from Maine is an adapted version of William Carlos Williams' poem This is Just to Say.
