Caesura Obscura was a site specific installation in Takoma Park MD in the summer of 2018 that transformed a forgotten pump house foundation into a riotously joy-filled pan-mystical sanctuary.
This small site, nestled into the side of a hill opposite a rushing creek, had gone largely unnoticed by the local community. It was an invisible ruin, ripe for a new life.
The idea was to fill the space with color, movement, and energy, creating a “cornicopiousness”, a magical moment of surprising beauty, a tiny unexpected place to come for solace, sanctuary, or peace.
A family of shapes and patterns were designed to feel universal and biological, pulling from images of nature and urban landscapes.
