Mike Ross & Nicole Whelan



Colorfield was conceived by New York artists Mike Ross and Nicole Whelan, and engineered by Mike Ross. This kinetic work encourages collective composition by allowing participants to arrange the suspended panels and their hued shadows, transforming the sculpture's shape and color. Ross and Whelan constructed the work on site with SKW volunteers and a team of five other artists: Jeff Stark, Brett The James, Touch, Irys, and Hannah Dvornik. The project was made possible with the generous support of Manley DeBoer Lumber Company and
Strunk Ace Hardware in Key West, Hansen Screen Company in Texas, and
Norman Librett in New York.
