September, 2016, STATE COLLEGE, PA
In collaboration with Marisa Vicere and the Jana Marie Foundation, the artist completed this installation of 144 balloons on the side of a parking deck, representing the estimated deaths by suicide across PA during the month of September. September has been dubbed Suicide Prevention Month. This piece called attention to the fragility of life, that once air is gone, the life is lost.
It was later found that a suicide was prevented the night prior to this installation on this very parking deck.
