EAST ST LOUIS ACTION RESEARCH PROJECT

[ LA236 ]

Urban Infrastructure

The urban infrastructure of sewer pipes and manhole covers went in to the making of this art installation, located in the midst of the retention basin in the plaza. Culverts and grates are embedded in the ground cover in the adjacent garden. The design makes a gesture to the industrial past of East St. Louis and suggests the subjugation of machine by nature.
