Artist Statement

My design for Ground Ball incorporates movement, whimsy, and the universal appeal of baseball for people of diverse ages, languages, and backgrounds. Because of the potential for large crowds, I also wanted the design to appeal to the non-cycling visitors to the ballpark as engaging public art.
