2020- ongoing

Chameleon Blind- Uptown. Blacklight led weavings illuminate at the moment of dusk through dawn. Materials include: Black light, rope, mason twine, plastic fencing, egg crate light grids, spray paint plexiglass and other found residues on constructed wooden frame.

Located in the historic Gerber Building, adjacent to the Wilson Red Line station, the work is housed in 16 windows and is designed to be viewed from the street. The work will remain on view while the building lies vacant in preparation for the opening of Chicago Market.

This project is generously hosted by Chicago Market and funded by a grant from Uptown United, Individual Artists Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
