STRATA is the proposed temporary sculpture (unbuilt) for Tappen Park, Staten Island, NY. The proposal was recently submitted for Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award 2013. Plastic Strata is a red box displaying a future geologic cross-section of Tappen Park. The red box is made of two vitrines that contain an imagined record of Anthropocene age plastic. In the setting of the public park, in addition to viewing the artwork at a distance, Plastic Strata offers the public a pathway through the visual strata.
