Work-in-progress: Jeff Williams
Artpace just got a little heavier. Earlier today, International Artist-in-Residence Jeff Williams (Austin, Texas) filled four 10-foot-long forms with a lightweight concrete using pumice as an aggregate. Each bar of dried concrete weighs approximately 500 pounds, and will be incorporated into a sculpture inspired in part by a visit to the Ferguson Structural Engineering Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin.
