Lead|Lead 2017

During my Artist residency in Gettysburg National Military Park I melted lead using the same process that Civil War Soldiers would have used to make lead bullets, to cast letters instead. Moving around the park I made Walt Whitman's poetry about the civil war visible in a few of the most critical battle spots.

Lead can be cast and recast, we see what we bring.
