Jack was Optimistic

Chris Plaisted - New Milford, CT
Steel, aluminum - 18’ x 16’ x 16’

Chris Plaisted is interested in forms of conflict — perhaps conceptually, but often it is a physical tension created by the use of contrasting materials such as steel with copper and concrete, or wood with metals in order to intensify each element’s properties. Jack is an Optimist combines steel and aluminum with the natural environment in which its installed. The weather and surrounding environment will intensify each element’s properties, spin the clouds and reflect the surroundings, allow sunlight and moonlight to shine off the globe, glisten with rain, and overall produce a more dynamic experience.
