During the Summer months, I usually bicycle commute to my job. The route that I took up until last year went just below the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi river and I often looked up and marveled at the superstructure. In August of 2007, the old bridge collapsed and within a year was replaced by a safer and much sleeker design. This bench was conceived in the months following the collapse and is my interpretation of what a dialog between the two bridges might look like.
"A Tale of Two Bridges" won the "Most Technically Accomplished" award at the 2012 Northern Woods Exhibition in Edina, Minnesota.
