Temporary installation in the Brooklyn Anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn, N.Y. Sponsored by Creative Time, Inc.

Because this work was created as part of the centennial ofthe Brooklyn Bridge, I wanted it to be about the hundred year history of the Bridge and not only the physical Bridge as it existed in 1983.  I created the character of an old woman whose life had been inextricably linked with the Bridge. The work consisted of a presentation of her home and all her belongings, under the Bridge, as well as hundreds of her drawings of the Bridge tower, which I did, and excerpts from her diaries, which I wrote.
